Alex Fort Lauderdale, Florida 9/21/2014 8:43:24 PM My dog service dog Snoopy may have had a stroke. in the morning he vomited an empty stomach and 12 hours later He came to me asking to massage his right rear leg and when I was doing this he collapsed and lots of drooling and could not stand up and was briefly rigid straight legs. It was terrifying and I rushed him to the pet ER where he spent 3 day in ICU. When I took him home his rear legs were somewhat uncoordinated. 1 week later his walk is 95 % and his personality is 100% back and his service dog training is intact. I've been giving him 1600 mg fish oil every day since. If it was a stroke it is an amazing fast recovery. Still waiting for him to run, don't know if it's possible with the rear legs. Is this a manifestation of a stroke in dogs? We didn't do the CT scan for $1500 as i was advised that the treatment would be the same whether we knew or not, which was to rest and wait and see and lots of fluids.
