Our 13 yr old, Australian Cattle mix girl has been having
Our 13 yr old, Australian Cattle mix girl has been having weakening of her back legs. Struggles to get up, but once up, able to walk fine (though not as long as she used to).We can home from a few days away (adult daughter taking care of house & dog) to learn she had vomited up pieces of sock (has done this all her life) and was not wanting to walk. She was in the back corner of our property, despondent and wouldn't come when called or enticed with food or treat. Her fur was wet. I was able to raise her front then rear legs and "walked" each to move her forward (goal was into the house). Once we moved together a few steps, she was on her own. Even stopping at the pool to drink. She perked up a bit and even wagged her tail when my husband came into the room. She continued drinking throughout the night, sometimes keeping it down, sometimes not.She is not interested in eating.

The dog that I picked up after a 10-day boarding at a vet
The dog that I picked up after a 10-day boarding at a vet that I had used numerous times before is NOT the same dog that I dropped off and I believe the vet lied to me about how my dog got in the condition he was in.Before I got to see him, I was told:- he caused scratches and abrasions he had; (Note: When I saw him, one went from eye to eye was about 1/4-in wide and you could see see skin and there was dried blood)- he was disoriented and I should consider putting him on Bright Minds dog food- he had to be put on Trazadone because he was so agitated- he hardly ate — when I pressed for more details it was just one day that he didn't eat immediately but he did eat- he didn't want to get out of the crate to go out- he was in a lot of pain and they could tell that by the way that he walkedI went home with Trazadone and Rimadyl. And was given nothing for the gaping gash in his forehead.After I got him home and looked at him closer, I realized there was no way he could've inflicted those scratches, scrapes, wounds unless they had barbed wiring around the kennel he was in. I believe he was attacked by another dog while in their care.I did NOT give him any medicine because he was so drugged up he could barely open his eyes or stand on his own for more than a couple of minutes.He was better the next day but I noticed:- he would shake constantly- heavy panting- he turned in circles to the left- he seemed to have some trouble standing, getting up- he couldn't be comforted — he's never been an affectionate dog since the day I adopted him when he was about 4-5 years old, but if I hold him for a minute or two he would always be comforted, but it just seemed to agitate him- he doesn't barkI took him to another vet and the first thing they asked him was if he had been attacked by another dog. I told the story the other vet told me.He was extremely agitated, but she was able to examine him. She said it could be vestibular, a stroke or a brain tumor.She ruled out vestibular and a stroke. She believed it was a brain tumor but explained it could only be confirmed by an MRI. We talked through some options to try and I went home with Prednisone and two other meds.He is better, but not the same dog he was before boarding.After a little more than a week on the meds:- he's still circling to the left; it's not as bad but still to the point where he falls down from the spinning; it's definitely not as constant as it was- he's eating fish and rice because he wouldn't eat his kibble (Fromm); he would spit it out- he still doesn't bark- he doesn't like a wet diaper- he gets agitated when he needs to be taken out- he's still panting and shaking but not as bad or as often- he sometimes whines at night, but he always settles down and sleeps through the nightI find it hard to believe that all of this is related to a brain tumor. From what I've read about vestibular that seems to be an “all of a sudden” disease which is how all of these symptoms seem to me. I would think I would've seen the circling at least before boarding if it was a brain tumor.What do you think based on what I described above?Thanks.
