Good Evening All,

I know this isnt really appropiate for this site, but just wanted to know if anyone can reccomend a good website/chat forum i can go online to discuss my pets health problems.
I have a Westie and they are prone to having bad skin, ive literally been to the vets so many times and im tired of them not giving a succesful remedy for his skin - dog is forever scratching and has the common areas of black skin under his legs area.

Sorry to bump this but didnt want to start a new thread.

My dog had a stroke on Sunday - she is still with us thankfully - but wondering if any one has dealt with this sort of thing with their pet. My dog is quite old - 13 (14 next month) and it was a complete shock to find her in the state she was in and I just went to pieces. Been sleeping downstairs to keep an eye on here as she couldnt climb the stairs - but today she went up them and that was a huge improvement - we all cheered!!

Only happy stories please as am still fragile and couldnt hear the sad ones!!!

BB my cat had a stroke when he was about 12.... He was never the same mobility wise... And was a bit forgetful.... But vet assured me he wasn't in any pain and was happy ..... He lived for about 9 months after his stroke..and died in his sleep... ( I'm all upset typing this now :( )

Poor haggis.... X



am sorry to upset you - its just awful as the emotions you have for your pets are off the scale. I have been absolutely heartbroken since this happened and cant get that image out of my head of what she looked like when i found her :( Vet said strong chance of more happening now she has had one - its like a time bomb waiting to go off. I feel she doesnt know who I am :( whereas she used to follow me about everywhere. Am hoping with time and loads of TLC we will get the old Haggis back.

She is eating and drinking just now so thats a huge step forward - its just this acting like we are strangers thats upsetting me

She is a collie cross. Got her when I was 28 and am 42 now. Will never get another dog - couldnt go through this again - ever.

So sorry to hear that Haggis is poorly. <3
Fingers crossed as the rapid improvement is very hopeful in strokes.
Our labrador X staffie was ill last year. She just fell downstairs and when she got up she was leaning to one side. No sense of balance at all. We were so stressed :(. The vet couldn't give a positive diagnosis, suggested stroke but not definite. Anyway she was prescribed steroids for inflammation in the brain. Happily, although it took 3 months for her to hold her head straight and stop listing to 1 side, she is her old self again now. She is 7 years old, strokes can strike at any age.
TLC is a very good medicine bossyboots ;)

I dont want to click the LIKE button as I dont like reading about your pets being ill/passing away but thank you all for posting. I really am like a zombie - am also trying to put on the brave face with my son who is nearly 13 - they have both grown up together.

Maia our dog fell off a wall on Sunday - about 3ft - but she just got up and carried on as normal. It was later on the stroke happened but vet said the fall could have been caused by stroke. Her face was all twisted and she was totally vacant like she didnt know we were there - when we got her up she couldnt walk - will never forget it. My husband has never saw me that upset ever as am normally a strong person but that was awful - bet I have everyone in tears thinking about their pets now - sorry

Just a thought about ops' westie. Do you use any chemicals to clean your carpets?
We have had problems with both our dogs when they have visited other homes where Shake'n Vac or similar stuff has been used.
One dog lost all the skin of her nose, totally raw oO. The other dog was vomiting badly and couldn't eat anything. All down to carpet cleaning chemicals!
Just a thought as maybe your vet wouldn't look for this?

Totally agree bossy, there really isn't anything to "like" about an animal being poorly.
I think our dog had a small stroke in her sleep, and when she tried to walk downstairs (sleeps next to my bed) she just tumbled all the way down.
As you say, the fall probably caused by the stroke, not the other way round.
Hope she recovers well. Such a worrying time :(.

My husband wakened me at 6am as when he got out of bed the dog was going all crazy with excitement, tail wagging, jumping up and down oO She seems to have just come back to us and is full of beans and she totally recognised me!!

I am not kidding myself and keeping myself prepared - but today its like she is back to herself - am so hoping it continues.
