Sažetak
Background: Swimming Puppy Syndrome (SPS) is an uncommon disease that occurs in the first weeks of life. Breeds predisposed to SPS include brachiocephalic and chondrodystrophic dogs. There is no sex predilection. Clinically manifested by the inability to walk, the limbs are permanently positioned laterally, in abduction. The prognosis is good if therapy is started within the first 3 to 4 weeks of age. Treatment approach of SPS should focus on physical therapy, bandaging, and improvement of environmental conditions. Materials and Methods: A whole litter of mixed- breed puppies, three females and one male were presented in sternal recumbency at the age of 4 weeks. The pups were non-weight bearing with the limbs in abduction and only capable of swimming-like movements. In half of the puppies, all four limbs were affected ; the other half had only the forelimbs affected. Neurological exam showed no abnormalities. Radiographic examination displayed mild changes on sternum anatomy in two puppies. Measurements of the frontosagittal and vertebral index did not exhibit deviations concurrent with pectus excavatum. No signs of pneumonia were observed. Physical therapy was started immediately, and consisted of massage, joint passive range of motion, standing, and proprioceptive exercises. Bandages were placed on the legs to prevent abduction. Results: The first puppy became ambulatory on the fourth day. The last puppy took thirteen days from the beginning of physical therapy to make the first independent steps. Conclusion: The application of physical therapy as well as bandaging resulted in the recovery of the entire litter.
