Jasmin is my very active 2 year old blue pitty. I'll try to keep this short.
I fed Jasmin and her brother Ace Sunday afternoon after church everything was fine. Monday morning around 4:30 she begins panting. It was kind of warm in the room so I took her outside to let her use the bathroom and come in and drink some water. She pooped and pee'd and drank some water when she came in. However, she didn't eat. The panting calmed down but and would pant on and off. Around 6pm it got worse she began panting heavily her gums began to turn a deep dark pink. As the night went on it calmed down.
Tuesday morning she seems to be feeling a lot better than Monday no panting gums back to normal pigmentation but a little lethargic. I took her out to use the bathroom and again she pooped and pee'd. She went back inside the house she didn't eat or drink any water. She wouldn't lay down unless I told her to. She began panting so I brought the water bowl over to her and she would drink a little bit. I would bring her pieces of kibble and she would nibble on a few pieces. This lasted throughout the day.
Today, Wednesday woke up this morning to let her out. She had a hard time getting up like she was dizzy. I called her and she would walk the other way like she heard me but couldn't see me. I guided her outside so she could use the bathroom and all she did was pee. I called her back in and she went the opposite way again. It looked like she was trying to come to me but couldn't she kept going the other way. I had to pick her up and bring her back in the house. When I put her down she just stood there and didn't move. My other dog rubbed against her and she stubbled and almost fell. So I took her to the vet. The vet did a physical and some other test and everything was fine. Her temperature was .3 above average. Then the vet did some blood work and rehydrated her so I left her for a couple of hours. Upon return the vet went over all of her vitals and everything was normal. However, her physical symptoms was still as bad as it was this morning. This time all she would do is keep walking to the left or kept her head turned left. So I ended up spending $400 on testing just for the vet to tell me everything came out normal PISSED
. If I would've known I would have been paying $400 I would have just took her to the emergency. He told me they could give her a steroid shot and if she responds then they can figure out was wrong, if she doesn't then back to square one. So upon leaving the vet her symtoms are the same as this morning I had get her in and out of the car and in the house. I laid her down where she sleeps at, I put some kibble next to her and some water. Its been 3 hours sense I brought her home and she havent moved from that spot and her head is turned to the left, she will not turn it right. When she hears the voice of my wife or myself she will try to get up but it's hard for her to get up because she is weak plus we have hardwood throughout the house so that doesn't help. After searching through the Internet and going to the vet I still haven't found a problem and/or solution.
If this continues on tomorrow I will take her in to get the steroid shot to see if I can get some answers. This is the fist time something like this has happened and I'm not only worried about her but upset as well because I don't know what's going on. Any advice/recommendations? Thanx in advance.
