Example of a frequently observed pathology: The herniated disc
The spine is composed of a set of vertebrae connected together and separated by intervertebral discs (cushions).
A herniated disc (Hansen type I, Hansen type II and type III) occurs when the material of the intervertebral disc penetrates and compresses the spinal cord causing discomfort, pain and may result in partial or total loss of motor skills in the limbs.
The herniated disc is actually a deterioration of the intervertebral discs. A pathology commonly observed in the senior dog, it can therefore be a normal occurrence.
This disease is mainly observed in small breed dogs such as the Dachshund, French Bulldog, Beagle, Basset Hound, Bichon but can also be found in Dobermanns, Labradors, Rottweilers, and German Shepherds.
