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.
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.
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 Agree to test cholesteral based on history of stroke symptoms
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 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 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.....
469720 tn?1388146349 Stroke Risk Factors Some stroke risk factors are hereditary. Others are a function of natural processes. Still others result from a person's lifestyle. 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. Fortunately, most risk factors are under our control What risk factors for stroke can't be changed?
667923 tn?1421462724 I have been experiencing intense pain,numbness on the whole left side of body. The weakness has been so bad that I can't even move my left hand or foot.I felt like a 40lb. weight was laying on my hand and foot to keep it from moving. I felt like I was having a stroke and after doing research on it, I did. Maybe it was an Ischemic attack or TIA. I have had 3 or 4 of these attacks and don't want to wind up having a full blown STROKE.
Avatar n tn s death was heat stroke. Your dog was exhibiting abnormal symptoms prior to being left outside. She had increased drinking while she was still indoors in the air conditioning. Increased drinking can be signs of over heating of course, but it is also caused by diabetes, hyperadrenocorticism, kidney disease, pyometra, toxin ingestion and more. I am sorry that I cannot be more definitive about her cause of death.
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 f tn Hi. What to say, other than that 18yrs is an extraordinarily good age. She is a very elderly lady. I have a crossbreed who breathes heavy during the night (actually whenever he's in deep sleep). I wouldn't worry too much. Older dogs sleep alot and certainly aren't as perky as younger dogs. Just imagine a human that's 88yrs old ... as that's the human equivalent for a Jack Russell. Walking sideways is another issue.
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 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 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 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 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 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.
713582 tn?1298262321 My dear Oma had a mini stroke this morning.
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 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.
Avatar f tn I had an ischematic stroke in August 2006, when aged 51, and since then have suffered numerous neurological 'episodes' which were initially diagnosed by the local hospital as TIA's (mini-strokes) but which I'm now informed are a rare kind of migraine.
Avatar m tn I notice when I sit in a chair and try to multi task my symptoms comes back. I also notice sharp pains in my lower back when this happens. I have had a neuralogist do a mri and a mri with contrast and all came back normal. When my symptoms were at its worse I had a cat scan and was normal. When I wake up in the morning I cough up yellow brownish mucas. I have been laying in bed for weeks and symptoms seem miner however when I walk or go out and be social my symptoms get worse.
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.
