Default Brain Problems?

We haven't contacted her because we wanted to find out what was wrong first. But I will definitely be contacting her tomorrow and let her know the possibilities of what this is , and that it may be possible she has picked it up there. We didn't want to jump to conclusions and blame anyone. But that's the only time my dog is out of the house or around other animals.


She did pick up something there before which was like a tummy flu and got a lump on her paw... Now there's no more chances of taking her I refuse too. Because I know she's not around other animals at any time other than getting her nails cut. We will now be taking her to the vet for that.

I am so sorry to hear this. I hope the antibiotics work and she does not have to go through the spinal tap and MRI. I am praying for you. You are wonderful to get her all the care she needs.

Hey there XXCASS can you swing by and let us know if the antibiotics resolved your dogs problem? I've been wondering how she is doing.

Thanks!

Hi kitty sorry I have been really busy.

The neurologist said she seems to have improved 60-70 percent. But some dogs may improve and then crash seeing as she doesn't have the proper diagnosis.

The neurologist gave a lesser strength of the steroids and stronger for her tummy abx.. She has been eating on her own every day like a cow so much!

However she has been having diarrhea which is a side effect but there is no blood in it her tummy just making alot of rumbelling.

So far we are just taking it one day at a time and hoping for the best. She seems to have been having some good days and the aggression has calmed down. Now we don't have to force her meds in a syringe we are able to put the pill in the food she's eating so it's been alot less stressful for her and easier for us.

So, so, so GLAD that there is improvement of any kind!

Hopefully, just being less stressed will help in her recovery!

That's wonderful news, I hope she continues to get better for you, is she eating just mainly because of the steroids?
