    Home from Tests

    Bismarck came home from the neurologist this morning. The CT scan didn't show any masses in his brain which is good, but we are still waiting on the results from the other tests. He is on steroids and different antibiotics. His behavior hasn't changed any, he is still having trouble with his balance. He falls over every time he gets up. It is really sad, but I am hopeful that whatever it is can be treated.

    Going to See Specialist

    Bismarck is not getting better, unfortunately, he seems worse. He needs assistance walking and going to the bathroom because of his balance issues and muscle weakness. We are going to see a neurologist tomorrow morning at the same office that did his hernia surgery a few years ago. If he is having seizures of some kind, I have not seen it happen. I have no idea what is causing this and I am so scared. He has hypothyroidism not hyperthyroidism I must of misunderstood the vet last week. I hope that we find out something tomorrow, I just want him to feel better.

    Need Your Thoughts

    I know it has been a really long time since we have posted and I am posting now because I would really like some positive thoughts out there for Bismarck. He has been having some health issues. It started out with him tripping over things and now his balance is off that he is falling all the time (mostly to the right). His back legs fall out from under him, muscle weekness. He has been on steroids hoping that it would help but it did not. Some blood work came back that he has hyperthyroidism and I have put him on meds for that this weekend but my vet said she has never had a hyperthyroid present with the symptoms he has so she will be consulting with a specialist on Monday. She said she didn't want to scare me, but there is a possibility of a stroke or a tumor. More test will need to be done, probably an MRI. I just want him to feel better. It is breaking my heart to see him like this. I will post when I know more.
