Introduction

A 9-year-old 13.6-kg neutered male mixed-breed brachycephalic dog was referred because of a 3-week history of ataxia and an acute-onset, nonprogressive, right-sided head tilt and a 6-month history of visual and hearing impairment and ocular discharge. Previous medical history included otitis externa of the right ear. Results of a physical examination were unremarkable except for reduced tear production in the right eye, as determined with a Schirmer tear test (right eye, 8 mm/min; left eye, 20 mm/min).

AssessmentAnatomic diagnosis

The absent menace response and palpebral reflex in the right eye with a normal pupillary light reflex and vision
