Avatar f tn I had a CT scan done. The doctor told me I was showing signs of mild emphysema. Everything I find on the Internet is negative and scary. I wasn't sure what this meant and prognosis.
2186126 tn?1384961026 He took Vetoryl for months and in his monthly stem test vet noticed he is starting to show signs of Addison's disease (opposite of Cushings) so took him off the Vetroyl for 30 days. Ill tell you that he was a completely different dog while being treated with the meds!! On the meds he is like a puppy again and totally worth he money. Our family had to give up a couple things to be able to afford his treatments but our dogs a member of our family so we don't mind.
Avatar n tn don't harp on that in your mind. Most of us hope for dignity the end of our winter, in my opinion our companions do too. Don't allow that memory to over take you repeatedly, your companion deserves his or her dignity. Remember that. Of you do both of your spirits will learn to flourish.
Avatar m tn 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. What would you do if you find that your dog is having a stroke?
Avatar f tn The vet thought a sudden death in our 8 year old might be hemangiosarcoma of the spleen or heart. Necroscopy found it was exactly that in her heart. This was a cancer of the blood vessels, and nothing could have been done. Sudden loss is so very hard.
Avatar f tn Monday was a devastating day we had decided that we would have 1last night as a family and would call the vet in the morning to perform the procedure at home however when i came downstairs in the morning he had shown significant signs of improvement he was still not 100% on his back legs but he was trying and he wanted too. So we decided to give him another 24hours we have been exercising him regularly he has a step to get on the sofa (he crys if hes not sitting by me).
Avatar f tn I'd be wracked with guilt if I though I prolonged any misery she might suffer. Are there common signs of pain in dogs that I might be overlooking? I just need to know that if I make the tough decision to put her down that I'll be doing the right thing for her.
Avatar f tn 5 -no rescue drugs) may have been a sign the anemia was causing heart damage, possibly causing the signs I have of mild heart failure now...I keep thinking there must be another explanation for the palpitations and swelling in my lower legs, but as yet, haven't come up with anything... Anyone have any input on this? -My liver biopsy was 1/1, so liver damage probably isn't the cause either...
Avatar f tn Elleon, Reading your story is like reading hundreds of others who have or suspected Lyme and got the same treatment----with small variations in symptoms. First let me say---- none of us here are doctors. But many of us have been in your shoes and have gone on to devote much time to trying to help others wade through this morass of mis- and dis-information. And we certainly can't say WITH CERTAINTY that you do have Lyme or one of it's co-infections.
661200 tn?1225486613 I have a 14yr old cocker mix in the end stages of congestive heart failure (CHF). We had her in the ER four days ago after what appears to have been a spell of hypoxia (lack of oygen to the brain). ER Doc gave her a large dose of liquid lasix which helped out some. She is currently on Benzapril, Furosemide, Spironolactone, and Pimobendan (and had been on nitroglycerin). We got her home from the ER not much better than when she went in.
Avatar m tn He is the second chow I have had now and the previous one died from a brain tumour at the age of eight. My dogs only eat Hills food, get exercised regularly are treated like my children as I don't have any kids, they get all there shots, deworming, etc and if they even seem to be a little bit off I get them off to the Vet. I will take my chow to Dr. Excelly tomorrow for a post mortum but was wondering if you had any ideal as to how he could died so suddenly? Best Regards Dr.
Avatar m tn His tongue fell out of his mouth, his eyes were open and fixed, his urine pooled under him and he was gone just like that in a matter of moments. Was that a stroke or a heart attack or a seizure? I know he was old but without any real signs of failing health do older dogs just die without warning like that? Our kids are all heartbroken and I wish I had better answers for them.
82861 tn?1333457511 We took Mom to the ER Saturday night as she was in extreme back and leg pain. She couldn't even stand to go to the bathroom, feed herself or dress herself. The day before she was positively diagnosed with blood in her stool. We had to pull a whole lot of strings to get her admitted as nobody believed she was sick enough for admission. All hell broke loose when they got the intial blood work in. Mom's hemoglobin was a 6. Yes, a six. That's not a typo.
572651 tn?1531002957 That meant Bomber, his new partner, would also be living in the house with us. K-9 dogs are also very much a part of their families. But Bomber is a 100 lb German Shepherd ... he is generally very docile around the house (unless someone he doesn't know comes to the door or breaches the perimeter of our property, lol), but we just were not comfortable introducing a small bird into the equation. Plus, Cosmo was used to being out of his cage whenever I was home.
Avatar n tn I know I'll never know 100%% for sure what happened, but it's just the sheer suddenness of it all, and her seeming so healthy, that still has me in a state of shock.
Avatar f tn It sounds from your advice that you have reached a good place in your heart in spite of your life circumstances. Wish you the best.
Avatar n tn Sometimes I can go months with none, other times I am having several a minute including other atrial arrhythmias like SVT. Ectopic beats are not deadly in a structurally normal heart. Even a lot of them. In fact, unless you're having thousands a day, most doctors won't even blink. You can be half insane with worry over something that is probably only hurting you in terms of your blood pressure (from the undue, unnecessary stress).
Avatar m tn i thought she was doing better besides bearly moving which i thought wa sthe meds and was a good thing since she wasnt acting like a lil puppy and over working her heart which led to collapsing and breathing weird attacks, today she was really bad head hanging off bed drooling she wnet out and then threw up n found her in the closet with eyes slightly open and lip a little up...maybe she died of a heart attack?
Avatar n tn You didn't mention the strength of Morphine you're on so I can't tell you for sure...If you're doctor knew the amount of narcotics in your system - he would have upped your Morphine intake (actually - he would have probably cut you off of all narcotics if he knew you were abusing.) My advice? Take 3-4 Vicodin and see if your "flu" gets better. If it doesn't, you may very well have a virus that's hanging on. The tylenol will not cause withdrawal symptoms...only liver damage.
Avatar n tn A person takes insulin to maintain proper levels of sugar in their bodies. A heart patient takes digoxin to maintain proper heart functioning. An opiate addict may take LAAM or methadone to restore an imbalance in their brains due to the disease of opiate addiction. New regulations would allow personal physicians to treat opiate addiction in the privacy of their office.
Avatar m tn Goldman Thank you for responding to my post but more importantly what I would like to know from you is dont you find it strange that the dog went into the hospital on the Friday and was in great spirits the dog was healthy, Happy Playful, was eating no signs of distress. The dog being in the Animal for four days without showing any symptoms of Coumadin or warfarin intoxication, No Nausea, No Vomiting, No loss of appetite, no drowsiness or weakness?
Avatar f tn Benadryl is also something of an anti-emetic, and can be given at 1 mg per pound of the dog's weight, but I doubt it will be very effective in the face of this kind of vomiting. Worth a try though. Another thing that helps is calcium - lots of it. I was giving Chica 2 Tums a day during her last couple of months. The calcium binds to phosphorus which is deadly to those in renal failure.
7644393 tn?1392935289 Time can only heal a broken heart but in the meantime make a memorial for her, inside or out, whatever you want and think of pleasant memories with her. Know that Kennedy will always be alive in your heart and lives on. Talk about her, celebrate her, and again please accept my condolences.
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 f tn Then the I developed hard pounds of my heart and became afraid. I then got my first panic attack in July.I was rushed to emergency that day.After many tests I all over the months nothing was found to be the problem. I was then diagnosed with Anxiety disorder. After a month i developed shortnesd of breathe.I used Alprazolam 0.25mg,it really help to come down but its very addictive.I was then referred to a psychiatrist.
Avatar n tn This is something that comes and go (or is bearable at least for some time), but when it is there I feel like there is constanly some pressure around my forehead, eyes, sometime at the back aswell and in my neck. I feel a bit of vertigo and I find it hard to focus because of this (with stress it gets even worse). If i lie down I can also very easily hear my hearbeat in my head.
299260 tn?1304219705 A strong woman isn't afraid of anything… But a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of fear. A strong woman won't let anyone get the better of her… But a woman of strength gives the best of herself to everyone. A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same in the future… A woman of strength realizes life's mistakes can also be unexpected blessings and capitalizes on them. A strong woman wears a look of confidence on her face… But a woman of strength wears grace.
