‘Bronson’ was a rehomed pound dog of unknown age when his current owners adopted him. He developed a strange hindlimb gait (way of walking) after running in the park one day. Bronson was tentatively diagnosed with femoral nerve deficits (isolated nerve problem) by his referring vet and scheduled for a neurological assessment by a specialist. A reflex hammer was used to look at his responses. Bronson had a hernaited disc and was treated with immediate spinal surgery (laminectomy). He improved over a period of several days.
