Abstract

A 7-week-old Irish wolfhound was evaluated for an abnormal hind limb gait. Quadriceps muscle atrophy was pronounced and patellar reflexes were absent bilaterally. Neospora caninum myositis was diagnosed by histopathologic and serologic examination and immunohistochemical staining of muscle. Substantial clinical improvement was noted after 18 weeks of treatment with clindamycin.
