    What in the video is a good indicator that the left thoracic limb has increased muscle tone? Was it the persistent shaking of the limb while testing the withdrawal reflex?

      Thanks for your question! You’re right that it’s not super clear in the video, but the dog had increased tone as I tried to push in on the limb while testing withdrawal. When I pinch the toe webbing, if there is no response, I will push in as I’m pinching to judge the tone in the limb. I will sometimes clearly show on videos how there is increased tone by trying to push in on the palmar surface of the paw, but I didn’t in this video. Had it not been for the finding of increased tone in the LFL, I would have been thinking this was a C6-T2 myelopathy.
