Treatment of cerebrospinal nematodiasis in a Boer Buck


A nine-month-old Boer Buck presented for an acute onset of pelvic limb ataxia. Radiographs, complete blood count and serum biochemistry were within normal limits. A cerebrospinal fluid analysis yielded an eosinophilic pleocytosis, consistent with cerebrospinal nematodiasis. Treatment with ivermectin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, fenbendazole and range of motion exercises resulted in partial recovery of pelvic limb function within five days. Within five months post treatment the buck’s ambulation had returned to a normal gait.
