Prayers for Sam. Bubba bears littermate, non diabetic. my heart cant take much more.
just came back from vet. Sam has horners syndrome too like bubba bear just diagnosed 2 weeks ago.
Sam can still blink, just came on monday night. Vet said it may change that he cant blink or stay the same. weird, it is same right eye. (also has beginning cataracts, some eye cyst in the other eye , uevitis ,etc.
Sam also has early stages degenerative myelopathy bubba bear got his wings from Tuesday. it is hereditary.
Sam has been controlled epilepsy 4 yrs next month. but his phenobarbital level was in toxic range and liver values high in July. reduced pheno and hopefully his recheck blood work today comes back improved. last year diagnosed with TCC bladder cancer cells on meds for that
He has been on Sam-e supplement and milk thistle since Denamarin has been out of stock everywhere. Sam had blood work drawn for recheck CBC and pheno level. and UA. will know more next week.
My vet took alot of time with Sam. then she showed me with a light what he has going on in both eyes. we did a stain test too that came back fine.
My vet said she is going to consult with canine ophthalmologist friend . she is curious if there are studies of horner's being hereditary. she took a bunch of close up eye pics of both eyes all angels to forward too.
Sam is happy as a clam and with his Duck toy. Vet and tech said was a good boy when they had to get blood jugular again since he has typical rottie always been impossible to get blood from leg veins. vet and 3 techs tried last time and times before. so just go straight jugular draw.
Another gentle giant my baby Sam. He did lose 3 lbs. down to 135. He gave kisses to everyone and pranced out carrying his Duck.
prayers .. pleeease... my heart is still raw
May be an image of 1 person and dog
