Common Questions and Answers about Dog stroke symptoms vet

stroke

Avatar n tn Went to Vet today for bloodwork - examination confirmed no pain in paws/legs that could be neurological - stroke? The dog shakes as well - waiting for results on bloodwork to come back then to the next step - possibly visiting a neurologist - any ideas/suggestions ?
Avatar f tn She could have had a stroke. Dogs don't generally have heart attacks, but they do have strokes, and her symptoms fit that. A stroke is sudden, and it can happen to a seemingly healthy dog,especially an older dog. It is something that would not have been due to anyone's action or inaction. I'm sorry for your loss.
3670518 tn?1351646155 I have very limited experience with stroke in dogs, but the way your dog recovered suggests to me it was not a stroke. Given you dog was receiving hospital level treatment I think you should ask the vet involved in that treatment.
Avatar n tn I just lost my dear pet from what the vet claims as a blood clot probably in her brain- but from what I know, it was probably from a stroke. Others vets and internal vet doctors suggest that if you think your dog has a blood clot, do not massage the area as the clot may travel to different areas of their body. I hope your dog is okay.
Avatar n tn There could be any number of things that are causing this - from canine MS to a stroke - a mild stroke. If it was a stroke, he could have physiotherapy. Is it possible it could be arthritis? Did he have X rays? Arthritis can be treated and controlled (our Akita has it). The only person who can determine this is a vet. Have you tried asking Dr. Cheng on this website? I've heard she is quite good.
Avatar m tn If your dog is twitching on the floor or has fallen unconscious, the probability of a stroke is very high. In this case you must rush your dog to your vet as soon as you possibly can. Often stroke symptoms in dogs cannot be identified, unless it's been a slow and steady process. Some of the signs to keep a check on your pet are losing control over bladder and bowel movement, losing balance, sudden blindness, not responding as usual and seizure of twitching of the body.
Avatar m tn Sorry to read of your loss and the loss of a buddy to your remaining dog - this is one of the issues that troubles me when we talk about getting our dog a "brother or sister". The one experience I have with a stroke, diagnosed as a spinal stroke, was there was remaining paralysis. In this case it was a 10 year old large Golden Retriever. We got him back on his feet (rear was the problem and is a weak spot anyway in Goldens) using water therapy.
Avatar n tn You need to get your dog to a vet and the sooner the better. These kinds of sudden neurological symptoms can be very serious, so please don't wait! It could be anything from a stroke to a brain tumor or some kind of toxin (poisoning) from food or plants. In other words, it could be something life threatening. I hope you can post back and let us know how he does and what your vet has to say.
Avatar f tn Hope you got your dog to the Vet by now! That is just irresponsible.
4784361 tn?1401231107 I share all of this in one case to share your sadness, which I still have three years later for our Golden, and to demonstrate an example of a case the vet believes was a spinal stroke, not a brain stroke.
Avatar f tn t available to help you get your dog to the vet when the seizures started. However that may not have changed the outcome. I don't know if it is possible, but you coonhound may have had a violent allergic reaction to something that doesn't bother you other dogs.
Avatar n tn t sound like you are describing that. Has the dog been tested for heart worm or tick borne diseases? Does the Vet feel these symptoms are a result of the stroke? Sounds like possible infection going on somewhere. Did the blood values improve after the spay surgery?
Avatar n tn ) a stroke and it can happen all the time. Especially in elderly dogs. You said it was a stray dog so you do not know about his past and maybe he had seizures befor but you do not know... You could ask the vet to make an autopsy so you an find out the reason why Caesar died.
Avatar n tn Oh my gosh! What is the matter with all these vets? Far be it from me to be able to diagnose your dog, as I'm not a vet, but from what you describe it sounds like he has pain, possible neurological symptoms, and maybe a hernia, apart from probable arthritis in his hip. It also sounds to me as if he could have fluid retention. That weight might be obesity, or it might be caused by fluid build up in his body. The surgery that he had, what was it for?
Avatar m tn He is pretty expressive dog and I think I can read him pretty well after all these years. The vet said that his head was probably tilted because of an inner ear infection, although they said they couldnt see that far in. The other thing is he has just recovered from a bout of dihrrea and is taking Metronidazole so they were reluctant to give him the antibiotic for the ear infection. I am reluctant to give it to him.
506547 tn?1210655204 You may be looking at heat stroke. Get him to a vet NOW! Heat stroke is a medical emergency, and death can come quickly. Soak him down with cool water before you get going. Check his gums - if they're white, he is in shock and you have no time to waste.
Avatar n tn I recall my boss from several years ago who had an Italian Greyhound who nearly died of heat stroke here in Texas. They had adopted the dog in winter, and one fine day in the middle of May when temps suddenly jumped to the low 90's, they looked out the window and saw the dog just laid out in the yard. She was unconscious almost dead. Thirty minutes earlier she was running and playing with the kids.
Avatar n tn I will take him to the vet but, cant afford thousands in vet bills. My last dog died a year ago of cancer and I spent about 3,000 on chemo, test, removal of a salvitory gland.
Avatar m tn Another one that is possible is hyperthermia or heat stroke. It may have been hot in the garage and the dog could get heat stroke stuck in a hot unventilated area. Of course, your dog's illness may be unrelated to the garage episode. If unrelated, there could be many possibilities, such as: back pain from disk disease, pain from other causes, such as a soft tissue injury, Lyme or other tick borne disease, dietary indiscretion causing GI discomfort and many more...
Avatar m tn if not then ask vet to prescribe medicine immediately... PL do not delay as one major such stroke will make your baby left with few days of life so do not delay treatment and above test.
Avatar n tn It does sound like a seizure - the problem is figuring out if the seizure directly contributed to his death, or if it was an underlying condition that caused both the seizure and death. It could have been a stroke, or even a heart problem. Any time oxygen is reduced to the brain, seizures become possible. Any chance he could have developed heart worms?
Avatar f tn I sure hope you got your dog to the vet. Dogs can get heat exhaustion and heat stroke just like people, and heat stroke can be fatal without immediate medical support. It's so easy to forget proper hydration and cooling during the beginning of the summer months. I'm guilty of that myself. Living in a sub-tropical region and being sensitive to heat, I have to force water and Gatorade down my throat regularly if I'm outside.
