What you must know about Spina Bifida in Dogs

Spina Bifida is a congenital defect of the spinal cord in dogs. In a healthy dog the vertebrae of the spinal column encase and protect the spinal cord.

This deformity is more commonly seen in the lower back, down near your dog’s tail, but it can occur anywhere along the spine.
