    2. What result would you expect for postural reactions in a dog with Myasthenia Gravis?
    Normal in all limbs
    Absent in all limbs
    Absent in pelvic limbs
    Absent in thoracic limbs
    Exaggerated in all limbs

    3. Which of the following is a TRUE expectation of reflex testing?
    Useful in evaluation of brain lesions.
    Increased reflexes are common with all spinal cord lesions.
    Normal spinal reflex examination is often present with Myasthenia Gravis.
    Electrodiagnostic testing is not a useful extension of the reflex examination.
    Normal reflexes indicate nerve or muscle disease.

    4. The cutaneous trunci (CT) reflex can helpful in assessing spinal cord function. Which statement is TRUE?
    An absent CT reflex can often be associated with intracranial disease.
    Patients with spinal cord disease will have an exaggerated CT reflex.
    The CT reflex is often absent when the skin is pinched caudal to a spinal cord injury.
    A spinal cord injury at the C5-6 disk space will abolish the CT reflex.
    Movement of the CT reflex cranially after a back surgery is a good prognostic indicator for recovery.

    5. What is the most reliable spinal reflex obtained in the thoracic limb?
    Flexor (withdrawal) reflex
    Triceps reflex
    Extensor toe (Babinski’s) reflex
