Old dog vestibular disease?

Update: He's definitely 100% or as close as a thirteen year old dog can get. He was really moving out on our walk tonight, climbing hills and only a little slow after 45 mins of walking. I sure do appreciate him more after our scare though.

Old dog vestibular disease?

He's definitely getting extra special care :). Canned dog food even though he isn't having any problems eating - extra walks - lots of baby talk aimed in his direction. He seems almost 100%. It will take ME a few more days to get back to normal though.

Old dog vestibular disease?

http://img.tapatalk.com/a693581d-6981-9525.jpg He's home now and seems about 90%. His balance is fine, no circling and no tilt. He seems a bit spacey and restless - to me he seems more post-seizure like but there would be nothing additional to do in that case either. Just wait and watch. Thanks for...

Re: Old dog vestibular disease?

Sounds like he is doing somewhat better. Went out on leash to go potty and was okay but a little unsteady lifting his leg. He's on meclazine (sp) for the vestibular symptoms but I guess he gets to come home after I get done here at work. Now I gotta set up the family room for a dog that walks in cir...

Old dog vestibular disease?

I haven't posted in a LONG time but do read almost daily to keep up. Anyway this morning (4:30 to be exact) I heard some rattling from Mooches in his crate. I checked on him and he was standing with his head braced in the upper corner of his crate, panting heavily. He was not very alert and when I n...

Re: Mast Cell Tumors : Lessons Learned

Good thoughts to all who are still struggling with these awful bumps on their dogs :( I was under the impression that one of the issues with mast cells tumors is that they are triggered/made worse by an overactive immune response. What prednisone (one of the main drug treatments) does is suppress th...

Re: Mast Cell Tumors : Lessons Learned

Good news today - Stage 1 with clean margins! :thumbsup: I guess we're just on the look out for new bumps now. I'm so glad I get to quit with the 4 benedryls a day, 1 pepcid, 2 antibiotics and 1 rimadyl. We were running out of easy cheese. Here is her incision after 5 days. It's like a mini tummy tu...

Re: Mast Cell Tumors : Lessons Learned

Well she's in at the vets getting it removed as I type. They'll call soon hopefully with how the surgery went. I'm not sure how long the histopathology takes, but I'll post here with the results. Then benedryl has not done anything good for her personality, she is a nervous timid dog to begin with a...

Re: Mast Cell Tumors : Lessons Learned

I'm sorry :( I'd be a little miffed about them not aspirating when it was found as well. Sometimes you have to push for what you want. I probably would have asked/told them to do it anyway. If I knew what I know now I would have. I guess I ignored the mast cell threads until my dog had one :( I too...

Re: Mast Cell Tumors : Lessons Learned

I haven't posted much at all here lately but Puny and I will join this sad little club :( It is a marble sized lump right on her nipple. She is set to have it removed Wednesday the 18th. She's had it since Christmas time and the vet said it was just a pimple when she went in for her wellness visit b...

The article is thought provoking... I think there are pressures on vets, culturally, from a certain clientele, and also financially to 'overrprovide' service. I've noticed a difference in newer practices vs. older 'old school' practices. They both have their benefits. My dogs currently go to a pract...
