Under the weather


It was a phone call at 4:45 am that woke us up, it was Danny panting that rolled me out of bed, it was when he stumbled, couldn’t keep his balance and didn’t have much use of his right side that my heart started to race.

5 am is a bad time to need the vet. We could go to the e-vet, but they would transfer us back to our own vet at 8 am. We got him outside to pee and back inside. Everyone else wanted out too. By the time we were done it was nearly 6 am and we decided to wait for our vet. I laid down beside him and waited.

By the time we left, he was able to walk a little better but we still carried him into the clinic. We saw the vet right away. This had happened one other time and 24 hours later he was fine.

12 hours later and he is doing much better. He still doesn’t have fine motor control in his right front leg, but he is able to keep his balance. All of his bodily functions are working like they should, he’s alert, moving a bit in the house and he ate all of his dinner.

Guess we just wait and watch.

  1. This sounds a lot like what happened to Lilac two years ago. I would have sworn at the time that she had a stroke, but the vet said it was a seizure. We never did get a true answer as to what it was, and she’s had a couple of “spells” since then, all of them that scared the daylights out of me. I hope that Danny will be alright! Why do these things always happen in the middle of the night when you don’t have your wits about you?
