Sounds similar to what happened with my canine last year.He unfortunately did not rebound.He was also 14 years old and was showing it before his stroke issue.I'm really hoping for the best here.Your dogs got some more trompin' to do.I think just keep doin' what yer doin'.He knows yer there.Positive vibes being sent from the OV.

So sorry Dean. Just lost my best friend of thirteen years two weeks ago.
What are the symptoms?

Yeah Ron, the Vet said that if we'd caught it sooner, the tumor could probably have been removed fairly easily. As it was, it was too emeshed with the cord to have the probability of a good outcome.

It's actually good that your family is there Dean.

All for one you know.

Prop each other up, and keep talking to Cush.

You know what they say about patients under full anesthesia being fully aware.....

Hoping you can have a vet come to your home. If available it is a bit more $, but it's worth it.

I'm really sorry. This is not the sort of thing one gets over ever. :(

Wondering if this may potentially be an inner ear thing?????

He just kind of came to...with a grimace on his face like he was in pain...then threw up a bit....now is lying with his head a little turned...

Talked with the vet a few minutes ago...trying to decide whether to subject him to the ride to Bishop or not.

Crag

That shouldn't be a hard decision at all. Get in the car and head down the hill. I vet will be able to tell you what is going on instead of just guessing. A few minutes of pain for him may save his life in the long run.

Cragman, get Cush to a vet! If it's "vestibular" (inner ear/balance) problem it's treatable and correctable! My sister's cat had this, and on prednisone and some anti-nausea meds has come back to life, with just a wee bit of a head tilt. Like Cush, it seemed at first as if Stella had had a stroke.

The last couple of times we took him down off the mountain, he had a real hard time getting his ears to clear as we came back up in elevation.
