Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello,Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is***** am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
I am sorry you have not gotten help from an expert before now. I just came online and saw your question.
Can you describe what happened, so I can tell if this was a stroke vs. seizure? Hydrocodone would not be harmful if this was a seizure, but I would not give it to him if this might have been a stroke.
Dogs with Cushing's can be prone to forming blood clots, so a stroke is possible. However, there is a condition seen in older dogs that can look like a stroke, called vestibular syndrome, that is not really serious, and gets better on its own. It will help to know what he did when he had this episode.
Let me know what other questions you have.
