Nalu is a nine-year-old Siberian Husky. One weekend, he was let out into the back yard, he ran, yelped and was then found dragging his pelvic limbs. Nalu was unable to stand and walk on his own, showed hindlimb weakness (worse on the left) and lack of awareness of where his back legs were located in space. His MRI revealed a stroke to the spinal cord (fibrocartilagenous embolism, or FCE) in his mid-back (at T12-13). The classic presentation of a dog with an FCE is a dog that was being active and had an acute onset of asymmetrical (primarily one-sided) spinal cord dysfunction. Signs are typically non-painful and do not worsen. Nalu is back home and his owners have been advised to treat him with rest, nursing care, physical therapy and time.
