Abnormal extension of the vertebral column, especially in the thoracolumbar region; can result in "dropped-back" appearance.
Peripheral motor neurons whose cell bodies lie in the ventral gray columns of the spinal cord and whose terminations are in skeletal muscles.
cell body ; gray matter ; motor neuron ; peripheral nervous system (PNS) ; spinal cord
Disease of the peripheral nervous system, muscle or neuromuscular junction. Signs include muscle hypotonia and muscle atrophy.
The part of the back between the thorax and pelvis; dogs and cats have 7 lumbar vertebrae.
The lumbar and sacral part of the spine.
Narrowing of the spinal canal causing the intervertebral disk between the most caudal lumbar vertebra and the sacrum to bulge and compress the nerve roots (they resemble the tail of a horse) which occupy the canal below the spinal cord; compression could lead to signs such as back pain, paresis; also called cauda equina syndrome.
caudal ; intervertebral disk ; lumbar ; nerve root ; paresis ; sacrum ; spinal canal ; spinal cord ; vertebra
Dislocation of an anatomical structure, e.g. vertebrae, eye lens, patella (i.e. kneecap).
