On Sunday morning my JRT woke me at 6a.m. When I went downstairs I found my old labrador (13) had been sick, urinated and pooed and couldn't stand up. Her eyes were going from side to side and her head was held on one side,
A trip to the emergency vet revealed that she had either had a stroke or had in inner ear infection that had caused vestibular syndrome. Apparently it causes very bad vertigo hence the eye movement and inability to stand as the room would appear to be spinning. Vet gave her injections and pills to be taken 3 times a day.
She is now eating small amounts and drinking water but is still unable to get out of her bed. I spoke to my own vet today and he said that a dogs brain has a great ability to reroute after a stroke and there is a good chance of full recovery.
Has anyone had experience of this?
