Common Questions and Answers about Stroke symptoms in a cat

stroke

Avatar n tn Twelve days ago my 15 year old cat had a convulsion, her vet said she had a stroke. She went blind. He prescribed her microsolone and candilat. She is still blind. Do you thonk she can recover at least some eyesight? Her vet said her right eye was bleeding internally, a little. Do I continue with the corticoid in spite of this bleeding?
691463 tn?1227419054 body bent to the left so she veered a bit as she walked (but kept a shoulder near a wall to guide herself), she did drool a little more, her eyes didn't focus quite as well... The 3 younger cats all were still deferential to her as Boss of the House and seemed to snuggle with her more. We got her to our vet, who after a thorough examination, prescribed an enzyme treatment with which he had had success on other feline stroke victims.
Avatar f tn if the cat scan was negative then no it wasn't a stroke. neither "mini stroke". It might have been something else affecting the central nervous system. Take note of the episode, keep logging symptoms etc. over the next months it's very important to do that. Your symptoms in medical terms I think were mild Ataxia (bad coordination) and maybe Dysarthria if "mechanically" you were unable to speak.

Avatar f tn Let us know how it turns out!
739242 tn?1234217827 t diminish the frequency, only the sensation). I am wondering if I had a stroke. They did a CAT scan in the ER, but I understand these are not always accurate at showing stroke. My symptoms are degenerating, into tremors and general exhaustion. I am at my wits' end.
Avatar f tn Stroke did not show, nor did anything else on MRI, CAT scan, ECG or in bloodwork. With my heart condition is it reasonable to assume this could be a TIA in your opinion? I have presented to ER 2 other times within the same month with same symptoms exact but a bit milder and each time the drs dismiss me with no possible explanation. The other two times tho the symptoms had disappeared by the time the ER drs had seen me after a four hr wait each time in the ER waiting room.
Avatar n tn take her to the vet now. It could be a stroke or a tumour or any number of things. I wouldn't wait it out..get her to a vet.
Avatar f tn My mother-in-law had her gallbladder removed about 1 month ago. She is experiencing severe migraines, along with severe nausea, and the left side of her face has become numb, and droopy. The first thing we thought was a mild stroke, she was admitted into the hospital, after MRI'S, Cat-scans, countless bloodwork, and ultrasounds, stroke was ruled out. Now, her dx is vascular migraines.
1608004 tn?1390770990 thgis is good but how can i get him to a vet as I have no car and as I am a resident of a nursing home (I had a stroke in december) it is impossible to get him there. I have no car, no trap, damn! sorry but I am in a quandry...
Avatar n tn m sure it can not be good swapping spit with a cat, even a cute one. Both my wife and daughter would crucify me if i returned the cat back over the fence from where she came, so should i just consider it's official and have it of to the vet for worm pill and a check up ?
Avatar m tn I agree with livinginhope. Don't wait. I waited three days before I went to see a Doctor about being very dizzy and fatigued. Once I saw the doctor, she immediately called an ambulance and I was hospitalized for 2 more days. This is serious stuff and quite honestly, my symptoms have improved but not gone away. 10% of TIA victims go on to have a major stroke within 90 days (1 in 10), and you now have a 35 to 40% chance of having a major stroke.
Avatar f tn How in the world did your cat get exposed to carbon monoxide??? I just did a quick yahoo search on symptoms of it, which took a total of only 2 minutes, which confirmed what I suspected that CO poisoning causes blindness and deafness. It said sometimes it's reversible. As for leaving the hyperthyroid untreated, this can be very dangerous and I don't know what vet in their right mind would agree to that!
Avatar m tn My mother had an unusual type of stroke on Wednesday (10-12-16). She is still in the hospital. She can move everything legs, elbows, knees & she can talk coherently. The issue is the dizziness, weakness and nausea. She is eating and keeping food down as of 10-16-16. She gets wobbly and dizzy when she gets up or wakes up. She is starting to get up a little with a walker.
Avatar f tn My 9 yr old cat suddenly has a difference in the size of his pupils. He is eating and acting ok so far. I have noticed alot of twitching in his tail when he is resting. Anyone else experienced this?
Avatar n tn Since she is old, I hesitate to try heroic measures with her if it is a stroke. Has anyone experienced this before? Any advice? If not a stroke, what else could cause these symptoms? Thanks so much for any suggestions anyone can offer.
Avatar n tn Should ever experience these symptoms collectively, get yourself to an ER immediately because some the damage done by a stroke can be reversed if anti-coagulants are administered within 3 - 4hrs of the clot developing. The anti-coagulant, in and of itself, is a potent drug, so the ER would thoroughly vet you before administering it--which will include a check-up by the neurologist on call. I'm not a doctor, but judging by your post, I doubt you're having a stroke...
Avatar m tn i didnt want a diagnosis i just wanted some advice. i went to the er and had a cat scan and ekg they saw nothing. i'm still going thru the same thing. should i have my doc run any specific tests.
4458465 tn?1354891772 Thank you for the suggestions! I used to go to a chiropractor about a year and a half ago. But for lower back pain. Went back to doctor and since blood work and neck xrays didn't turn up anything, took more blood work and ordered a CAT scan in two days. So, regardless of the outcome, I will feel better to have the CAT scan. Won't be just wondering anymore.
Avatar n tn The symptoms you have could be due to the high blood pressure which can cause arrhythmia (heart not beating in sync) and symptoms of TIA or stroke (headache, vision problems, numbness etc). However a contrast MRI of brain, and carotid angiogram should be done. Also a 24 hour holter should be done to monitor your heart activity. The cardiologist must not have tested further because the drop in heart rate and arrhythmia happened just once in 3 days.
Avatar f tn Since your symptoms seem to be all above your waist it could be somthing in your spine. A pinched nerve or somthing like that. Dont you just love the "wait and see" approach. ...What exactly are you waiting for? LOL....
397460 tn?1268533736 Hi.Can a Cat scan detect a TIA or a small bleed? Also , can it tell if the intracranial presure is high?
Avatar f tn you have all the symptoms of a stroke...how old are you?
1721122 tn?1309327385 How long can an indoor/outdoor female cat live if she is loved and cared for by a loving family of three, one mom, one little sister, and one big sister, plus a three month old female lab puppy, a parakeet, three chickens, and two other cats in a small log house in a twenty one acre forest?

Avatar f tn I was diagnosed in 2005 stroke was in 2006. I was in intensive care for a little over a month. Lost my job of 20 years and currently seeking SS Disability. I am lucky, should be dead, instead, besides major memory problems and constant arthritis pain, I pretty much can function. email me at ***@**** for any more info.
