Abstract

Optimal care of the neurologieally complete paraplegic involves a combination of medical, surgical, and supportive management. In the absence of ascending-descending diffuse myelomalacia, and with surgical decompression and appropriate medical and supportive treatment, more than 50% of these dogs may recover acceptable ambulation and urinary continence as evaluated by owners. New treatments for patients with complete spinal injuries are currently being developed and evaluated and may soon be available for veterinary use.
