The dog had obtunded mentation and compulsively walked in wide circles to the left with an otherwise normal gait. Postural reactions were abnormal in the right thoracic and right pelvic limbs. There was an inconsistent menace response in the right eye. The neuroanatomic localization of the lesion was the left side of the prosencephalon. Magnetic resonance
