Polyradiculoneuritis (coon hound paralysis) is an ascending paralysis which occurs primarily in dogs used for hunting raccoons or in dogs which are free to roam with the opportunity of coming in contact with a raccoon. Although it is characterized by quadraplegia of the affected animal persisting for three weeks to three months, complete recovery is possible.
