Katie


Our beautiful Katie had just turned 10 and she took a stroke. At first the vet wasn't sure if it was an inner ear infection or a stroke or both. However she has what could be termed as similar to Bells Palsy with facial drop, head tilt and her left eye does not work. She needs daily eye drops to keep,the eye moist otherwise it might ulcerated. At this stage it is watching her closely as the vet says we can't rule out a brain tumour

If she deteriorates the vet wants to carry out a MRI Scan.

Yesterday was a bad day, she wouldn't eat and just lay in her bed not moving, we really thought we would have to have an emergency vet call out. However today although eating little, she is a little brighter.

Re: Katie


We are still not eating much�� she did eat a slice of ham earlier - you get to the stage you would offer them anything. For those that dont know shes in kidney failure x

Re: Katie


Sorry to hear your news. It's very difficult if they won't eat. Is she dehydrated, if not it may be worth asking about vitamin injections and anabolic steroids, this is a 'pick me up' for renal cats but obviously check if its ok for dogs! I'm guessing she has horner's syndrome? I've seen a couple of dogs at the vet with it after various issues and they recovered over time. Fingers crossed she feels better soon.

Re: Katie


Poor Daisy, a stroke and renal failure.. She is such a beautiful girl.I do hope that she starts to eat soon.Keeping everything crossed for a swift recovery for her.Have you tried her with Addiction dog food?I had a very old dog that survived solely on Addiction. It smells great and of course it is hydrated with hot water which brings out the flavour even more. I don't know a dog that doesn't love it.
