Common Questions and Answers about Dog stroke symptoms vet


Avatar m tn Am seeing a vet later today but kind of anxious so i wanted a professional opinion now. Took my dog for a 1 hr walk 3 days ago, it was hot and humid, but breezy; and the conditions that were not unbearble to two unfit adult humans. Other than the normal panting when we re-entered our AC cooled home, everything seemed normal, physically and behaviour. However about 24 hrs later the dog was acting strange, almost as if spaced out, always looking up.
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 ?
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 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.
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 f tn Hope you got your dog to the Vet by now! That is just irresponsible.
Avatar f tn Dogs can have strokes, which is what a brain aneurysm amounts to. Sometimes a dog that has a stroke will recover, just like people can recover from a stroke. Other times, a dog will not recover or at least will not recover well enough to have good quality of life. I think what I would be doing now would be to have a heart-to-heart talk with the vet to see if he or she thinks that yes, this probably was a stroke.
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 My 1.5year old male dog (crossbreed from the pound) was found dead in the garden yesterday with pale gums & tongue. He was rather depressed in the last few weeks though he enjoyed his walks, he sometimes yelped with the slightest stroke on his back on and off and the vet couldn't find anything wrong and gave him some painkiller.
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 Another person posted about how their dog did the same after eating the same dog food we have in question and her 12 year old dog recovered from all symptoms.
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 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 Beginning of May we took our 12 year old Stafford Terrier Pit to the vet to have a small growth removed from her bottom lower front tooth. The growth had been there for a year and never got bigger and didn't bother her other than it didn't like right. About two - three weeks after the growth removal, Daisy has seem to become an old dog fast. It's like she had a stroke or something on one side, she walks sideways and into walls, hangs her head primary on one side...
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 my 12 1/2 year od dog had a stroke on Friday and now has coughed a couple for time and im in 2 minds weater to have put to sleep
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 f tn Hello Sherbear.....You have an emergency on your hands! You are wasting valuable time looking for answers on the internet. We on a public forum cannot diagnose your dog. You must seek help for her (At her Vet) quickly! Make the call, now.....She's depending on you! Please, let us know what you find out....
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.
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 ) 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 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 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 I do not like what this vet has told you, it sounds like waffle to me. Your dog deserves to see a vet with more sense.
