Background:Osseous-associated cervical spondylomyelopathy(CSM) typically occurs in young adult giantbreed dogs; with Great Danes (GDs) being most com-monly affected.1–4The prevalence of CSM in GDs pre-sented to North American teaching hospitals is high at4.2%, but the etiology remains unclear.aThe mainabnormalities present in osseous-associated CSMinclude bony malformations and osteoarthritic changesof the cervical vertebral articular process joints, pedi-cles, and dorsal lamina, resulting in vertebral canal ste-nosis and spinal cord compression.
