Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts ASAP
Blood was normal. Thyroid was normal (I'm going to double check this one).
Other symptom is upon lying down, or waking up for no reason, and then panting. She is not a panter so this is particularly unusual.
Appetite is ok. Drinking is ok. Urination seems ok. No pot belly.
No on the neurologist. What might be the answer if that's the right route?
Do you know, btw, what the symptoms of sulfaclozine would be? I myself am allergic to sulfa. I get a full on body rash when I ingest it.
Thank you for your time and advice. I will ask my vet to follow up in these areas.
Thanks - the same. She slows down on walks but is mostly otherwise ok. I had to carry her twice today. I am thinking about switching vets because mine just dismissed us after ruling out the heart as the problem.
awww thanks. Mostly she's OK except for this issue. She is playing so that's a good sign. Did you see her pic? Sweet girl.
Jelly's the smaller one on the right.
you don't see "Jelly's the smaller one on the right" in that last message I posted? (I did use the link, I think the clip in this system is for images)
They're so beautiful, especially when they play. We spent a lot of time with them this weekend. We also happened to have gotten their favorite treats. They were so full of love and happiness that they kept breaking out into play. They play King of the Hill. My bed is the hill. Jelly Bean guards it while Cupcake tries to unseat her from the floor. Last night they got so excited over this that they Jelly Bean jumped off the bed and they ran into another room. It was just so cute. So the good news is that she does have he capacity for this type of behavior. I only see the symptoms when we're actually on a walk. Our walks are usually 7/10th of a mile. Lately we don't even do half of that before she slows down to a stop.
I will let you know how they're doing. I think I have another vet that I'll be calling.
