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 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 the vet told us whatever we were doing to continue doing it that Shady was in good health. On Oct. 15th my husband let the dogs out of the garage to go to the bathroom then he got the bowls put dry food in them & brought them in the house to prepare. We add cooked brown rice (with carrots & peas) and a little canned food. Shady did not come back in the garage. She loved to eat so this was very unusual.
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 Infarcts (blood clotting leading to lack of circulation in part of the brain) occur in some dogs. If the damage to the brain is minimal then recovery may occur quickly. If the damage is severe, recovery may not occur at all. I do not know the incidence of infarcts affecting the brain in dogs but I think it is pretty low. Even when dogs do not recover fully from peripheral vestibular syndrome they normally have a good life.

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.
Avatar f tn Didn't sound like it. Always hard to lose them. So sorry.
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.
7644393 tn?1392931689 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 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.
5011074 tn?1362700474 I am so sorry for your loss. I have had 3 dogs die suddenly, two from heart attack and one from stroke. In all cases they were perfectly fine right up until they...weren't. It is so hard to lose a furry family member. And it is even harder on us when there is no warning. The one thing I try to keep in mind is that it was easy for them. They died while loving life, chasing balls, playing, without any drawn out suffering or pain. Again, my condolences. You are in my thoughts.
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 he had minimal vet care and lived for about 16 years. I think that line of dogs, I know nothing specific about the Redbone but he look beautiful and bright in your picture. Sorry too I someone, including me, wasn'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 m tn 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. My conclusion from this experience is there will be long term affects, if the dog returns to "normal" I'll guess it was not a stroke.
Avatar n tn can a stroke be faked, or caused by drug abuse and is it normal for the flacicity to come and go randomly sometimes with in 10 min or so.
Avatar m tn But have to tell you that we are not veterinarians or experts here, but only people who have had some experience of dogs, or their own dogs, and have some common sense, and wish to try to help others and their dogs with suggestions and advice. I think the only, and best thing you can do for your dog is to find a vet anywhere near your home, who will be able to give some treatment.
Avatar n tn The ingredient in this type of poison is found in human medicines such as Coumadin and other anticoagulants (blood thinners) used to treat people with heart disease and stroke to prevent clots. It is a very common medication found in many households. Another common though weak anticoagulant, is Aspirin.
Avatar f tn About one-third of those who have a TIA will have an acute stroke some time in the future. Many strokes can be prevented by heeding the warning signs of TIAs and treating underlying risk factors. The most important treatable factors linked to TIAs and stroke are high blood pressure, cigarette smoking, heart disease, carotid artery disease, diabetes, and heavy use of alcohol. Medical help is available to reduce and eliminate these factors.
Avatar m tn his passed within a week, some dogs have it longer, but it resembles signs of a stroke to a T. And is very common in older dogs. their whole equalibrium (sp?) is off.

Avatar f tn Stupid me, I usually have one or two episodes of heat exhaustion before I get back in the swing of things. Same thing applies to our dogs. If they're outside all day, they need lots of water, shade and maybe even a baby pool to wallow in to cool off. Please let us know what the vet has to say. I'm hoping it's nothing too serious.
Avatar f tn Well, my little sweety-pie had such a stroke in her 90's, was unable to walk, talk or recognize anyone at age 100, did not speak or show any signs of facial recognition for six months afterwards, and she had her 103rd birthday a week ago and feeds herself, is no longer fecally incontinent, and told me : "I've never been happier in my life!". And she gives the best hugs of anyone I know.
Avatar m tn apparently there are reports of dogs living in and around Memphis that have been dying through heartworm, even though they have all been on Heartguard, some for years. It would seem that some dogs are becoming immune to the medication ... though most vets still assure dog owners that Heartguard is a good product (as long as it is not an imported cheaper brand bought off the internet).
