Ive read the dog will have a staggered walk or seizures etc.
But then i thought it wouldnt take long to kill?
Obviously Milo has had seizures 6 (Or something similar, suspected seizures anyway)times now since Nov 09 but just now we were in the kitchen, i was on the floor with him and he got a bit wobbly and started staggering around so i thought he was probably about to collapse so i held him still for a bit and he looked a bit weak and he soon went back to normal.
Head pressing is also something associated with PDE? I know Milo will rub his head against peoples arms or clothes if he has an eyebooger but i guess thats to remove the gunk...
I just wish the Vet could find out whats happening with Milo :(
Was just on Google reading about cuases of seizures or staggering. I hate the internet. It makes me worried.
"Difficulty breathing - This is an
if it happens while your dog is sleeping. Breathing may stop and
start or seem labored. Breathing problems occur when the tumor
puts pressure on the mid-brain, affecting involuntary breathing
- (He stops breathing sometimes, a little nudge can start him again or hell hack then start breathing again) But then again he is a Pug..
"Seizures - May range from partial
(focal) to grand
mal. Seizures generally become worse as the tumor gets larger.
Cluster seizures (several seizures one after another over a short
period of time) may develop. If the tumor is not treated, seizures
become more and more difficult to control as the disease progresses."
- Whatever hes having has been getting more frequent..
"Personality - The dog may show
or may become docile or puppy like. He may become less affectionate,
or develop obsessive behaviors, like vocalizing, pacing, licking,
"fly-biting" or a compulsion to eat."
- He always has had some kind of licking obsession, maybe not toallyobsessed but it used to be when he was alot younger, like he would lick sofa, frabric, walls..even licked the paint off of my bedroom wall then started licking off the plaster...
"Gait - Unsteadiness, stumbling
or staggering. Difficulty on uneven ground or difficulty with
- Not always, but he was staggering earlier, head to one side and sort of wobbly.
"Appetite - You dog may lose his
desire to eat. On the other
hand, he may become ravenous. He may also forget what is edible
and what is not."
- He hasnt been eating his kibble. He probably doesnt like it, who knows.
"Pain - The dog may whine, whimper or
even yipe without
apparent reason. He may shake or scratch his head or rub it against
objects. The dog may choose to sleep on the floor, rather than
a bed, so that it can rest its head on the solid floor."
- Thats funny because hes been shaking his head occasionly and scratching it on the right side lately, which i thought might be an inner ear thing, guess it would explain the stumbling like slight loss of balance?
Isnt he too young for any kind of Tumour? I should probably stop googling but then i am worried about Milo. But then again, his brother did have a brain problem as a puppy and was seen by two vets for a different opinion, but he had to be euthanized?
Ahh, i hate you Google.
