Wei Syndrome in a Dog

- by Emma Rowe, BSc, BVMS(Hons), MS, Dip ACVS. Australia

Approximately 16 months prior to presentation, the 10 yr old male, neutered German Shepherd had a sudden onset of pain in his left rear limb. The referring veterinarian did not find any abnormality in the left rear limb and noted that it appeared to be sciatica. At the time, the dog was treated with oral meloxicam but did not tolerate this non-steroidal formulation, and was switched to daily subcutaneous injections of meloxicam for 3 weeks. The dog recovered and then one month prior to presentation, suddenly lost control of his hind end.
