A 7-year-old male neutered DSH is presented because it has an abnormal gait (walking with the hocks touching the ground) and posture. There is no history of trauma and the owner believes that these abnormalities have developed over the last few weeks. On further questioning, the owner reveals that the cat has been losing weight for the last 2 months, during which time it has also been noticeably polydipsic and polyuric.
