VIOTT, A.M. et al. Hypomielination in Weimaraner dogs: case report. Arq. Bras. Med. Vet. Zootec. [online]. 2007, vol.59, n.4, pp. 899-902. ISSN 0102-0935. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-09352007000400013.
Three female Weimaraner pups had generalized and rhythmic body tremors since the first week of age. The remaining two male littermates were unaffected. One 4-week-old female was euthanatized and necropsied. On gross examination, poor demarcation between the gray and white matter was observed. Microscopically, there was severe hypomyelination of the brain compatible with congenital hypomyelinogenesis reported in dogs.
