Cragman, that's great news, I'm glad Cush is doing better!!!

Our little Chicky puppyboy Chihuahua (9 years old) just had his second Stroke in the last three months!
I thought this last time, that was it, and couldn't take it, had me ball 'in!
After three day's in the hospital the vet has him on Phenobarbital (for life), Tribrissen, and Robaxin for now!
He went from lifeless and limp with seizures to happy and licking us, best $1700.00 I've spent!

Have you been giving him anti-seizure meds in addition to the steroids?

The vet said that Chicky was in "pre-seizure" I guess that means not full blown?
After his first stroke the vet gave him Azium (Dexmethasone) and was taking Rimadyl for his joints after his double knee surgery, but the vet told us to give him just the new meds because if we mixed them with the old ones it would be bad for his kidneys! Chicky is known as Super-dog and is a legend at Collett Veterinary!

He'll let you know, and I know you know that. Just wanted to let you know I'm thinking a lot of Cush.

He's your DOG, man. We(used loosely) understand that kind of love.
No matter how it turns out(I reckon you know that tune), you know the times you've shared. Well, now the value of those times shines.
And they always will. The ripples fade so quickly...Time is brief:-(

One of my favorite pics of Cush...eye-balling a bald eagle that was hovering over our trout pond. Cush has always been very protective of 'his' fish. :)

Cush could have been hazel-rays brother.. The pinkish nose,, was actually considered a defect by the old queen of england when breeding this line,, odd cuz they are the BEST of dogs out there imho...Ive had 2 labs, and will have another when this noodle head english setter of mine gets a wee older..

Can always count on you cragman to drag your ass out of bed in the wee hours. :-)

I still haven't gotten over losing my Billy Bob. Hold your family close.
