Project Description

This little darling is Cuba, a very sweet 8 year old pug who presented to Southpaws due to acute pain in the hindlimbs. She was not able to walk and could not support herself. She had a CT of her spine and myelogram to be performed, as well as a cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) sample sent off for analysis. The CT/myelogram did not show any obvious area of compression of the lumbar spinal cord, but the CSF results revealed meningitis was treated with steroids and she is responding well. Our internal medicine department at Southpaws treats a wide range of conditions affecting the endocrine (hormonal), gastrointestinal, neuromuscular, respiratory and urogenital systems. Our team can contribute greatly to treatment of all types of cancer with options for chemotherapy, molecular-targetted pharmacologic agents, immunotherapy, radiation therapy and hormonal therapy.
