On January 18, 2018 Winchester was rushed to the vet for, what I thought, was a seizure. Luckily, I shot a video of the episode. It turned out to be a severe dizzy spell. After a quick physical, the vet determined he had a bad ear infection in both ears. He was put on anitibiotics and ear medication was applied. He was diagnosed with vestibular disease. with the dizziness he has trouble walking and his head tilts to one side.
Last month, Winchester had ER visits two nights in a row. He was panting severly. Antibiotics given once again. The second night, pain pills were added.
February 23, 2018 Winchester was coughing up water and breathing heavily. I rushed him to the ER once again. I knew he must be hospitalized. He had aspirated pneumonia and pancreatitis. He was very sick. I thought I was loosing my sweet boy.
After 7 nights in the hospital, my boy came home. He is on 9 different medications for the pneumonia and vestibular disease. He still has the head tilt and has some trouble walking. Some of his medications mqy be for the rest of his life.
I would like to thank everyone for helping with his large vet bill.
