Thank you for updating. I logged in to see if you had. I am glad that this doctor seems to be taking you more seriously. Its a shame she was not the first one you had the chance to see, and I pray this will help your little one. Best of luck to you and I hope her appetite comes back and she functions better. I understand the stress of all this, especially the expense part, even though that is nothing compared to a healthy happy hungry dog that you love so much!

This was my vet recommendation for her, unfotunately she misunderstood me and thought students work on the dogs there, that was not the case when I used this clinic/hospital at all.

My dog was in intensive care there for 2 weeks and had neurologists that TEACH at the university caring for him. I am sure students do some rotation there, but I'd guess not at that sort of level, simple things perhaps. There just really is no better place.

It saved my dogs life.

I had a friend's Pug had similar symptoms and it was Encephalitis. I'm glad you finally got to someone who can help diagnose. Keeping you and your little one in my thoughts.

My friends dog had other symptoms as well (seizures etc). I dont recall her saying she had stopped eating, just the stumbling rang a bell with me. You are in a specialists hands finally (that is how my friends dog was diagnosed). The vets had no clue either. You can now go a proper course of treatment. Keep us updated.

Also, you know your baby best. Keep fighting and settle for nothing less!

Have you done a full tick panel? Not just a lyme SNAP test- I mean a full tick panel from a reputable lab experienced in TBDs. Everything you have described are symptoms of tick borne diseases. You don't need to have ever seen a tick on her for her to get a tick disease, they can hop on, infect, then fall off without you noticing. Lots of vets sadly miss them, particularly in areas without a lot of ticks. My non-chi Copley had lyme and a co-infection and it took us 6 months to figure it out. He would have died if I had just let the vets of their thing and not eventually demand a tick panel. They were even ready to do exploratory surgery on him. I always say when in doubt- do a tick panel!

I'm not the OP but I know what area she lives in and it's waaay out of season for ticks and they are not at all common even when it is summer time.
