Avatar m tn I had a similiar sight to talk to people when I had my tibula/fibula and Foot broken. right leg and left foot wouldnt ya know. So I had to crawl on knee pads for six months not fun.
Avatar n tn Hi, I found an abonded small dog with head injury as told after the x-ray from vet. Vet told me it's a serious brain damage where the structure is in pieces. But the dog is able to walk a little and see also. I do not know if it would be any other option to have this dog alive painless and healthy?
203342 tn?1328740807 com/wiki/Dog_Cushings_DiseaseIt will explain everything to you. My dog was just diagnosed with Cushings she is 10years old. She is a Siberian Husky and she has a longer life expectancy so I am treating her. She has had all the symptoms you describe. Panting, drinking water like crazy, back legs very weak and lost a lot of muscle, eating like a wild dog,up all night has to pee all the time even in the house which she NEVER EVER did before. She lost her eyesight but that doesn't bother her much.
Avatar n tn Found a dog last night. It was abandoned and evidentely hit by a car which broke both its hind legs. Took it to the vet and had it X rayed. Turns out the bones healed but in an unnatural state. Meaning: one leg healed twisted and the other healed a V shape. Needless to say he cant walk on them. He just uses his front legs to walk and both his hind legs are always up against his belly. The vet says its a hopless case and that surgery would take a long time and it would be costly.
Avatar m tn If it doesn't a trip to the vet would be a good idea. It does not sound like anything is broken, but if I read correctly the dog is small and sleeps with you in bed. This could result in injury due to a person rolling over on a small dog - seems that was not the case, but a thought. You also mention arthritis and cold, it is unusually cold in NJ, single digit this morning again, so that may be a major contributor.
Avatar n tn IF, however, he had been exhibiting other symptoms of Bloat, your vet should have noted those symptoms and he should have offered a surgical solution. In a case of bloat, essentially the stomach and the spleen switch places, with the stomach flipping over on itself. This effectively seals in the contents of the stomach leaving the dog unable to vomit and unable to move the stomach contents further down into the intestines.
Avatar m tn Our dog had some very similar symptoms. Our vet told us that we could keep bringing her in for 250-400 a visit or just suck it up and take him to an internist and finally find out for sure what the deal was. We did just that and after a very conservative list of tests (meaning they'd start at the to of the list, being least invasive and cost... to the last test, which was an endoscopy. Our luck,we had to get to the endoscopy and she found the problem The cells/biopsy found that the dog has IBD.
730826 tn?1317946934 Your puppy may have eaten something it shouldn't have or may just be sick. Have you had the puppy to the vets yet? Usually along with gurggling tummy, will come the diarehea. Some boiled chicken and white rice may help. But if he continues to have a problem, best to get him checked by the vet.
1340519 tn?1305170302 So I posted a while back about my vertigo/dizziness, slow cognition, trouble finding words... and I just wanted to post what is going on with my symptoms now and see what feedback you all could give me. For the past 2 days I have had this pain in my neck/base of head. My neck feels somewhat strained and it feels like a headache in the base of my head. There is also just pain where my neck and head connect... hard to describe, but its not constant.
Avatar n tn Thank you for your comments. Actually, no, I'm not doing very well with this to be honest. Lucy was long ago by a trainer determined to be a "prodigy dog", meaning, one that leans certain things almost instantly by observation. The slang many use would be a "Lassie dog" type of dog.
Avatar n tn had a growth off of my broken coccyx that was pressing on my sciatic nerve in my left leg,causing even more pain and loss of mobility. Surgery was the last option but thank heavens I had it. After a few days was almost as good as new! Now that I'm much older(had surgery in '85) it does bother me but not nearly like it did, have had epidurals but never helped. I would recommend finding a good ortho and going from there. Time sometimes will heal but not always as in my case.
Avatar n tn Throughout the next year, I started getting other symptoms--I would get sharp pains rushing up my leg once and a while if I stepped farther out than normal, and sometimes my leg would get a jolt of pain. I dealt with it this past year but finally decided to mention it again to my doctor, since the symptoms have changed and I have become worried because the area it's affecting it getting bigger.
Avatar n tn The only information I was able to find on the internet, was something about a dozen dogs in a study that had a blood clot in the intestines, one died and the rest had to be put down. It is very distressing when you see your dog recuperating after surgery, getting to the put of walking around and eating, only to die of a blood clot.
Avatar n tn My vibration is apparently in exactly the same location as yours is. You sound like you are describing my leg exactly. I have no other symptoms, no eye twitch, no back pain, and no really stressful job. I wondered if it were hormones or the extra 20# i carry cutting off circulation or nerves. I am active and healthy and only in my early 40s. My vibration feels like someone letting air out of an inflated balloon rapidly in 2-10 second intervals.
Avatar n tn i had anterior lumbar fusion l5-S1 in may of 06. Immediatedly developed leg pain, with numbness and pins and needles. told surgeon on 2 separate occasions he ignored my questions as to why this happened. The last 8 months have been hell for me. i am now on 800 mg of neurotin 3x a day. i cannot put any weight on my left leg at all.
203342 tn?1328740807 My dog peed in our house twice today. I was surprised because he'll usually bark at me and go to the door to go outside. I'm wondering if this is a sign of old age? They did think he might have Cushings awhile back but he's been acting so great since then I had wondered if they had misdiagnosed him. Could it be from the Cushings or old age? He's a maltese mix and he's 12. I just don't get why he didn't "tell" me that he needed to go.
Avatar m tn I did however come across a post about Cushing's disease and my dog does have several of the symptoms but I don't know if it can cause a dog to moan. Its not listed as a symptom. Here is the link if you want to ck it out I just started giving my Boxer baby asprine (2-4 crushed up and in a small ball of bread) once every 12 hours is the suggested time line. I don't know as yet if it is doing any good however...
Avatar n tn This story is heartbreaking, and I am really, really sorry this happened to him. I have heard stories of bad reactions to vaccinations, some of them serious. I have an ongoing tussle with my vet about it. I do trust my vet in so many ways, but I now insist on a "Titer test" for my dog. One of the elements of the vaccination (leptospirosis) will not "titer" properly, so he told me, so I have to go with it, and let them give it to her. Either that, or expose her to the disease.
1405176 tn?1281137777 no loss of appetite, no vomiting, nothing. She collapsed and died while walking back into the house from her morning potty break. It was truly that sudden. My husband tried to clear her airway and do chest compressions, but she was already gone. We will never know exactly what happened to her. We decided not to do an autopsy because we didn't feel that it would give us any additional answers, we already had the answers that we really needed - that she went quickly and she didn't suffer.
Avatar n tn Turns out he had prostate cancer that eventually moved into his lungs. Don't want to scare you, but the symptoms sound so familiar to me. The dog needs to see his doctor.
Avatar f tn Your story breaks my heart as I lost my 14-year-old dog, Chica, to this exact disease on January 4. The vomiting is so awful to watch in the end as it just goes on and on and on... There are many anti emetic meds to try. Has your vet not prescribed anything? Reglan (metoclopromadine) is a very cheap medication, unfortunately, it is also metabolized in the kidneys, so a too high dose results in toxic levels in the blood.
Avatar m tn Going to the toilet normal too (both ways) However he is a bit lethargic, but he's always been a lazy dog, and he seems to be limping but I can't tell which leg, he is also stiff. He seem's to have improved, but I didn't think it was chocolate until today, I found an empty bag of milk choc chips. He could have had upwards of 100g. I am really scared. Will he be okay? We are taking him to the vet today to know for sure. But please, help me!
Avatar n tn I have had the same symptoms in my lower left leg. I Googled the problem and found your comments. I am going to the Dr. on Monday. I will post what ever I find.
Avatar f tn I have so many of the same symptoms numbness (all on left side) face, arm, leg, foot, hand. I have left sided shoulder pain, hip pain, leg pain, buttock pain, tenderness, and weakness. I cannot even lift a gallon of milk from the frig. I have had MRI of brain, neck, and low back ALL NEGATIVE I have had and continue to have blood work regularly checking for anything my GP can think of.
171768 tn?1324233699 I'm sleeping with a body pillow, but my hips hurt so much, they wake me up and cause me to turn over. The pain starts in my hips and goes down to my upper thigh! I keep getting UTI symptoms during the evening, but as soon as I drink some extra fluids, it goes away. Surprisingly, my back isn't bothering me that bad right now (I probably just jinxed myself). Considering my back surgery and everything, I figured it would be hurting more than it is. I think that's about it right now.
Avatar n tn I have experienced insomnia, leg restlessness, diareha, sever pain, anxiety and all the other normal symptoms, but at this point the worse was jaw pain. I feel like I'm gonna make it at this point, but the first 2 days were awful. NO ENERGY at all. I was very concerned on the effects all the drugs were having on my body, especially my liver. May I suggest, if you are contimplating quitting, take a few sick days and blame it on the flu.
Avatar n tn You were not specific on the symptoms you experience, but my guess is that when you exercise you don't drink water, or you sweat to excess. This will dehydrate you and you will lose salt and other minerals. You can experience shaking of the hands, visual disturbances, headaches, stomach aches, stitches in the sides, exhaustion, low grade temps and other unpleasant symptoms. If this is the case, try drinking a fluid that has minerals in it like Cytomax.
Avatar n tn period symptoms and pregnancy symptoms are pretty much the same. it is not unusual to be a few days late. i just got my period this morning and i was expecting it 3 days ago. i am usually regular/on time. i had all the mentioned above symptoms and i questioned in my i pregnant? then i said, wait a minute, my husband and i didnt have sex for a whole month so it cant be that! you probably have period symptoms if HPT is negative.
Avatar f tn I am having some bizarre symptoms for about 5 weeks now. My dentist found elevated bp at a routine appointment, which I thought was strange, since I had a complete cardiological workup in January (echocardiogram, holter monitor, 24 hr monitor, ekg, stress/echo test, blood work, carotid doppler) and a ct scan and u/s of the abdomen and pelvis. The only thing showing up on the ct was diverticulosis which i've had for years.
211940 tn?1267884866 My story was rewritten recently. I thought my symptoms has started at age 52 with sudden weakness of my right leg. In 1999 at age 47, I was blissfully practicing pediatrics. I caught a weird virus which gave me horrible nasal congestion and a croupy cough. After about a week of this I developed the deepest fatigue I had ever had. I was able to press through each day, but suddenly one morning I awakening with really horrible vertigo.
