"ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE"
I have posted one of my favourite photos of Casper with an update on his health for all his friends.
The leading neurologist vet in the country is sure that Casper has suffered an Ischaemic stroke which is caused by a sudden lack of blood supply to the brain.
After various tests including an MRI scan, chest x-rays, ultrasound on his abdomen, blood tests and more they have been unable to find the cause of the stroke.

Ischaemic strokes have been associated with many medical conditions in dogs and cats: kidney disease, heart disease, under or over-active thyroid glands, Cushing disease, diabetes and high blood pressure (hypertension). Other less common causes of blockage of the blood vessels supplying the brain include clogging by a fragment of tumour, fat, parasites or spinal cartilage.

Despite thorough investigations, an underlying cause is not found in more than half of dogs with stroke.

Although there is no specific treatment for stroke, most dogs and cats tend to recover within a few weeks. However recovery may not be possible if the stroke has affected a vital part of the brain. The long-term outlook and chances of another stroke depend on what has caused the stroke and whether this can be treated.

Casper is now home and under instructions to rest, so he will have lots of love and cuddles and we will keep our fingers crossed that no serious damage has been done although he continues to be disorientated and this is stressing him out.

Casper sends his love to all his friends who have been concerned and have prayed for him.

Today's music from the mighty Beatles and rest assured he is getting lots of love www.youtube.com/watch?v=s-pFAFsTFTI

OH Sweet Boy !

Casper is going to be ok with your love and care.

"Ischy" strokes are manageable and many do get them.

He is much loved and you ALL will find a pattern and be able to enjoy alot of time.

Improvement is very likely with the right stimili and alot of love.

I KNOW you will give both.

PLEASE know we care .

I havent been around much as I am helping folk with the techinical side of saving memories from a much loved cat and dogs site... but I am try it at least pop in here for a few mins each day if nothing else.

Love and HUGSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

does he feel better?
3 years ago.
English Pointers has replied to djinn34
He is a little bit better but it is a slow process.
It does not help that he is 13 1/2 and has arthritic hips so his balance is not the best but he seems happy and we will take care of him
Thank you for your concern
