Intervertebral disc extrusion is one of the most common clinical diseases seen in small animal practice, and leads to many canine deaths each year. Much of our understanding of this disease is still based on Hansen’s original thesis from the 1950s, and clinical approaches are driven as much by fear of failure as a genuine evidence base for best practice. Over the last 6 months we have begun to explore one of the more well-known but less understood elements of the pathogenesis of this disease ie how calcification of the disc may be involved in the disease process. At the same time we are attempting to document the natural history of this disease in a way which has not been done before, as well as creating better treatment guidelines.
