Wobblers Syndrome - an Overview
Wobblers Syndrome affects various large breeds, where Great Danes and Dobermans are the most common. Veterinarians believe there is a genetic factor involved as they have reported the condition in certain bloodlines of various breeds. It is difficult to differentiate between genetic, environmental or nutritional factors.
A true case of wobblers in Great Danes is normally seen at 3 to 12 months of age, with a slowly developing issue with lack of coordination in rear gait function. This is due to the pressure on the spinal cord as it passes through the vertebrae of the neck. In Doberman Pinchers this condition is often not developed until the dog is 5 to 7 years of age. The narrowing of the spaces in the vertebrae causes a pinching of the nerves in the spinal canal, and the inflammation and swelling of the spinal cord leads to the resulting Wobblers’ Syndrome.
