Stroke effects in dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Stroke effects in dogs


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.
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.

612551 tn?1450022175 The Golden suffered a stroke in August of 2008 and it took considerable effort to get him back on his feet. The stroke seems to have been a spinal stroke, and I assume is not related to the deafness. In fact the onset of near total deafness came on very suddenly about two months ago, well over 6 months since the Golden was last exposed to loud barking during play.
Avatar n tn Post mortems were not available at that time for dogs. He was also in fantastic shape, so our vet really had no other explanation to offer than a genetic heart condition. Just like a person having a massive heart attack. Many dogs these days seem to have heart murmurs too. Some are never bothered by them while others do have issues. Really impossible to say, but it truly sounds like a heart condition and it was just her time to go on to the rainbow bridge.
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 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 n tn My 77 year old mother had a mild stroke that left her left side affected. While in the CCU unit in the hospital, she became restlest, 5mg injections where issued on 3 seperate occasions within 36 hours . the last after she was moved into a private room out of CCU. 10 hours after the last injection she fell into a deep sleep (Coma Like) state. CT scans done after this found this was not caused from another stroke.
Avatar f tn Reasons for Coughing: OK, For starters, you need to rule out Heart Problems....The xray will not only show the heart, but also the lungs...This is important.... With Heart Disease, the weak heart cannot pump as well...Fluid builds into the lungs causing the cough..The cough is usually MOIST like they're choking on congestion...Actually, they are...The cough is worse in the mornings & during periods of running, playing & excitement....Fluid will show in an x ray of the lungs.....
Avatar n tn If this is a small dog and 3ml is a human dose, then yes, it could be harmful.....A large dog would be less likely to suffer as serious side effects....... The same overdose symptoms can happen to a dog as with a human.......You need to look at your package warning label and read them or google side effects of this medication...... If you see anything unusual with your dog's behaviour, you need to seek medical attention ASAP.....Let us know how he/she is doing.....

Avatar f tn I understand each stroke and stroke patient is different, but what could we expect in relation to time of recovery and how much recovery should we realistically expect? Any advice or experiences shared would be appreciated.

Avatar m tn My aunt aged 70 is hospitalised due to brain stem stroke and is in ICU. She is yet to regain the consciousness and is still on ventilator. Doctors have stated that there is very little improvement. As of now she lost her limb movements, swallowing capacity and eyelid movements. Though she is chronic diabetic and had bye pass surgery six years back her major organs are functioning normally. It is not clear how long she will be like this. At what point of time recovery process will set in?
Avatar f tn i am treating cervical cancer with chemo and radiotherapy which has weakened me and now i have extreme pain in my shoulder bones and can not even lift them and they keep shaking. i am 73 years and i have been given folic acid. am i developing stroke ?
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.

436837 tn?1293793226 You do right to limit the time laying in the sun. Dogs can easily get heat stroke and heat exhaustion and dehydration. Basking in the sun when it gets TOO hot is not a very good idea. I've caught my dog doing it sometimes....but most of the time she knows when she's had enough and moves automatically to the shade. A question. Just a thought. Does your dog stick close by you when you're outside? Mine is inclined to. If I am in the sun she'll come and sit or lay near me.
Avatar m tn The tone? Are you meaning the effects? Unless it's a transient ischemic attack (TIA), none of the effects are likely to reverse. TIA effects reverse within 24 hours.

Avatar n tn She was in the shade, and was in a resting/sleeping position just like she always is in when she takes a nap. She had not been running around much or excercising that day. If she had a heat stroke, would there not be foaming at the mouth, vomit, and a more restless death? I feel horribly guilty, and feel that I should not have let her outside. Normally, I let her out, and she comes to the door and barks when she is ready to come in-she never came back to the door.
