Glad to hear that you're taking her to Davis. I remember making that trip myself several times many years ago.

Keeping fingers and paws crossed for a non-serious diagnosis and an easy and speedy recovery for Miss Indy.

Sure does make your heart sink when they wheel your dog away on a gurney.

Will update when I know more.

I just finished talking to the vet. Top of the list is brain tumor. Spend a long time discussing, if you aren't going to do the mri and treat, put her out of her misery now.

I'm not willing to leave her overnight because she may not have long. We are going to run bloodwork, screen for addisons. She would test for myasthemia gravis, but I would have to leave her for that and it's a long shot. She wouldn't give her a shot of liquid doxy in case it's infectious because there is no proof. Indy now as eye ulcers which have developed rapidly.

She did get quite a bit of stool out of her, which is good. After discussion, there isn't a good reason to do xrays alone. There is no one here to do an ultrasound.

I am bringing home some supportive care stuff for the digestion, but only for a couple of days. That won't change the fact that she can't walk - her front end is all messed up.

Unless there truly is a miracle, it won't be long. I can't bear this teary

My heart just sunk. I am so sorry for the news you got, Lisa. I would be with you and also bring my dog home so I could continue to provide care and love.

If she has pain or is ready, you will help her with that too, I know.

There are just not the words for comfort, but I am thinking of you and Indy. hugging
