Earlier this week my 12 and half year old dog, Tiger started to walk funny, his hind legs were wobbly,when get up. In the past few weeks he had trouble getting up the stairs and then yesterday he had a seizure. so I took him to is vet. They gave him a shot of Valium to control his seizure , follow by blood work. All the blood work came back normal.I told the vet everything I could about Tiger , only health issue he was hypothyroidism and he was medicine for it. The vet thought it mighty be a brain tumor. The vet gave a dose of Valium just in case he had another that night. I took Tiger back home and watched him. Glad to say no seizure(s) but I notice he only tilt his head one way and can stand up . I kind could be paralyzes on one side. He won't eat his dog food has eaten some bits of toast. He drinks a lot of water. I so afraid that I will have euthanized him. I have been crazy with guilt and fear of life without him. Two years ago I had to make the same heart wrenching and difficult decision to euthanize my nearly 16 year old cat, Shebba. I still have problems dealing her loss.
Shebba help me cope with my mother's death 6 years ago and Tiger help me cope with Shebba's death. And Now I am might be losing him.
