Acquired myasthenia gravis in a poodle

Can Vet J. 2011 February; 52(2): 169–172.

An 11-year-old, spayed female, teacup poodle was evaluated for a chronic cough, lethargy, hindlimb weakness, and reluctance to exercise. Thoracic radiographs revealed megaesophagus and aspiration pneumonia. Serum antibodies against acetylcholine receptors confirmed the diagnosis of myasthenia gravis. The unusual clinical history and case outcome are discussed.
