This is the second of a 2-part review of spinal cord injury. The focus herein is to highlight recent findings regarding prognostic indicators used for spinal cord injury (SCI) in dogs, promote an awareness of the current recommendations of standard of care for traumatic spinal cord injury in veterinary medicine, and highlight the findings of clinical trials of therapies for spinal cord injury in dogs. This 2-part review provides information that will assist general and specialty veterinary practitioners in evidence-based veterinary medical practice in an area that has become particularly specialized.
