A fortnight ago Petroc had an episode that mirrors all the symptoms of a stroke. It was so awful that after three days of really nursing him & following the vets instructions we made the terrible decision. However he wagged his tail so a swift phone call cancelled the home visit. He is on Vivitonin tablets and I can walk him with a sling.He is eating ,happy, continent and because his head is now held with a distinct list to port looks very appealing. Petroc is a fairly big dog a beardie x wolfie and weighs 32 kgs.He is over 13 years old and had symptoms of hip arthritis so he was having Cartrophen injections . Anyone out there who has experience with this awful condition please share with me any management tips you have. I love old "lopsided lopez" to bits.There is a lot about the condition but not a lot about the prognosis on line.Thanks doggy people.
