stroke

Avatar n tn Many owners confuse the symptoms of a stroke in humans to a stroke in dogs. In fact, they are quite different.
Avatar n tn Yes dogs can have strokes, but it is rare. If she's showing no other signs/symptoms then I wouldn't be too concerned about a stroke.. Other symptoms are head tilt, turning the wrong way when called, lethargy, vision and balance problems, incontinence, and more.. Does she have any underlying conditions that you know of? ie kidney or heart disease, diabetes, thyroid issues, recent head trauma, high blood pressure all increase risk of strokes.

You can't change factors related to heredity or natural processes, but those resulting from lifestyle or environment can be modified with the help of a healthcare professional.

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 f tn Causes of Unexplained Panting in Dogs Respiratory Disorders Perhaps this is one of the most common causes of unexplained panting in dogs. The dog may be suffering from a variety of disorders affecting the upper and lower airways that interfere with proper breathing. Possible conditions may be: disorders of the voice box (with loud panting), nasopharyngeal polyps, collapsing trachea, the presence of fluid in the lungs or chest, asthma and even cancer.
Avatar m tn Canine Stroke Recovery Dog's suffer from brain strokes just as we do. However the chances of complete recovery are greater. Find out about canine stroke recovery period and how to look after your dog post attack... Dogs usually suffer from strokes only after they are over 8 years of age, unless there is something drastically wrong with the dog's health. Strokes never do come with a warning and often just happen without any prior signs.
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.

1204073 tn?1265628271 It doesn't sound like you were at fault. It's not uncommon for dogs to die around that age. He could have had a stroke, heart attack, etc. The owners could have an autopsy done to find out for sure.
Avatar n tn I hope the hospital scanned his head to see if he did indeed have a stroke, and if they have not, by golly they need to! Also, I am wondering if he was in some kind of accident before this happened to him, like even while working on the car, he may have wrenched his back. Sometimes if you hurt the thoracic spine, it'll make the chest hurt, and if he hurt his whole spine, it'll cause the tingling in his extremities and face.
Avatar f tn Very good day, drove a lot. Had a decaf latte and in went downhill from there. Thinking I had a stroke or anurysm or something.
Avatar f tn she said just to keep an eye out for symptoms and she will listen to his heart when he comes in for routine shots, etc. as i said, my dog is very active and has absolutely no symptoms of a murmur. here are my questions: is a wait and see approach ok for something like this if he has no symptoms? would he need heart medication if he has no symptoms? are heart murmurs ever misdiagnosed by a veterinarian (saying he has one when he does not)?
Avatar f tn 8/17: feelling very dizzy and cold, at 11am (1h meeting from 9-10, in meeting at 11). Feeling better at about 2 (lunch 12:30) Some palps during step class. 8/18: lots of palps during 8:30-9:30 pump class. Feels like long, strong beat. 8/19: feeling palps during night. 8/22: Woke up feeling fine then heart block, uneasiness started at 7:30 (before breakfast). Morning after presentation at acs conference. 8/24: feeling mildly dizzy after got off plan in Chicago and very hungry.
Avatar f tn 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. There may be no way to tell for sure without a CT scan of the head, and I don't believe I would go that far (if such a thing is even available in your area).
Avatar m tn A stroke or heart attack could have caused sudden death. I'm sure there are other possibilities as well, maybe you want to ask your vet. I am so sorry for your loss.
Avatar n tn When I was in the Hospital, I was told that I had Heart failure as well as a Stroke. Did the Heart failure cause the Stroke, or did the Stroke cause the Heart failure. Thanks in advance for the help.
Avatar m tn You did a great job with your dog in that he lived for 14 years and was in good health. The same things that cause sudden death in humans happen to dogs as well. So the answer to you question is yes, dogs can die suddenly with no symptoms that anything is wrong. As traumatic as it is to those of us left behind, it was a kindness that he never had to suffer and likely didn't even know anything was wrong. Sometimes there just aren't any good answers.
Avatar n tn Strong heart palpitations in the middle of the night for about half an hour.
338734 tn?1377160168 Went to hospital ER due to stroke symptoms. Had CT and MRI as well as bubble echo. Suggestion of shunt. To follow up with TEE.
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 n tn Agree to test cholesteral based on history of stroke symptoms
Avatar f tn Also my ear feels like there is something in there that is affecting my hearing.I had my sinuses checked and my ENT said they were fine. Recently the symptons have started to come more frequently. The new sympton is the tip of my nose gets really cold and sometimes my ear. Also, my vision in my left eye gets a litte fuzzy and feels different from my right eye. Sometimes I get shooting pains across my left brow (comes from temple and goes to middle of face).
1474856 tn?1288289049 numbness or weakness in the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body; confusion or difficulty in talking or understanding speech; trouble seeing in one or both eyes; and difficulty with walking, dizziness, or loss of balance and coordination. I have this all the time, but the Dr's just keep saying it is just migraine. I am so worried about feeling like this constantly, but i encountered a problem when i tried to see a new Dr within the Henry Ford health system.
Avatar m tn head tilted to side, one eye not focused, not blinking as much, trouble walking. The older two are female and are being treated with Prednizone, which is definitely helping. The youngest one began exhibiting today, will see the vet tomorrow. I looked at RoundUp as the cause, but it doesn't seem to fit the bill. Any thoughts?
Avatar f tn Felt like i was having a heart attack in the shower this morning and again tonight.
Avatar f tn My still needed rest, nap. I also had a increase in heart rate.
