Welcome to the Canine Chiari Institute

Welcome to the Canine Chiari Institute site. We have included content that will serve owners, breeders and veterinarians as well; informational and in depth descriptions of the conditions that affect the mainly small breed dogs that exhibit characteristic symptoms and signs of cerebral/cerebellar compression and impaired CSF flow. The site incorporates  an “Ask the Specialist” forum where pertinent information can be exchanged with experienced chiari-like malformation researchers, on-line.
