Canine Cervical Spine Example 2

The following radiographs are the right lateral and ventrodorsal views of the cervical spine of a five-year-old Dachshund. The intervertebral disc space at C2-3 is wedged, this may indicate probable intervertebral disc herniation. Also, a mature calcified intervertebral disc nucleus is seen at C3-4. The cranial aspect of C7 is displaced relative to C6 however this is probably artifactual due to positioning.
