Figure 1: The pup on day 1. She was recumbent, the muscles were contracted with the limbs, neck and tail hyperextended. The ears were erect and facial muscles were contracted with retracted lips, protruding nictitating membrane and enophthalmos.

Mentions: On physical examination, the dog was alert and in good body condition. She was recumbent, the muscles were contracted with the limbs, neck and tail hyperextended. The ears were erect and facial muscles were contracted with retracted lips, protruding nictitating membrane and enophthalmos (Figure 1). The rectal temperature was 40.1°C. Other vital signs were normal; although panting was observed initially, this stopped after hospitalisation. There were several pressure ulcers on the limbs but a putative causative wound was not found.
