Syringomyelia associated with Chiari-like malformation is a common inherited condition in the Cavalier King Charles spaniel (CKCS) and often leads to debilitating clinical signs. Both conventional surgical and medical intervention in veterinary medicine tries to address the pain associated with the condition. The most common symptoms associated with Chiari-like malformation in human beings are neck pain and suboccipital headaches. The patient exhibited signs which suggested it was suffering from similar clinical signs and acupuncture was used successfully as an aid to control these clinical signs along with conventional medical treatment.
