Figure 4: The pup after three weeks of intensive treatment. After three weeks of hospitalisation the clinical signs had almost completely resolved. the ears were still erect and there was a mild lameness of the right hind limb.

Mentions: Careful hand-feeding was continued, from an elevated platform to prevent regurgitation and aspiration of food. Also, she was placed with the front limbs and thorax elevated. After a further week there was improvement, she was more relaxed and vital signs returned to normal. Fluid therapy and intravenous antibiotics were continued and combined with metronidazole (Flagyl, May and Baker) per os (20 mg/kg q12 h) when she started to eat unassisted. Vital signs remained normal and the muscle rigidity improved. Radiographs were repeated on day 20 and there were no signs of hiatal hernia (Figure 3). After three weeks of hospitalisation the clinical signs had almost completely resolved. The ears were still erect and there was a mild lameness of the right hind limb (Figure 4). She was discharged and made a full recovery.
