Best wishes to you both and I am sure you will find some way of stabalising Kayleigh .At one time I used to buy a baromemter on
every holiday so must have ten dotted around and even found a shop in Cornwall that just sold them but thankfully have not noticed
any effect on daisy or rosie .I have asked the question you mentioned so will advise as soon as I know ,I am not the type to give in .
Thank you - yes she is a bit better, not how she was before the episode unfortunately though.
Brian I bought a lovely old fashioned barometer but it doesn't work :( I have now gone digital!! . I have a wee clock with a barometer and weather forecast on it, it's pretty accurate actually and now is showing a rather nice picture of the sun coming up from behind the clouds - guess that means sunny spells :)
Dear nicki, so sorry to hear of kayleighs episode, lets hope she gets through this as quick as possible, Ruby was diagnosed in may, but at the moment is non symtomatic, but she does have other health issues, you mentioned about seizures in one of your posts, ruby had a couple last year, she was disorientated and went and hid under the table, she could,nt stand, and she had a rapid eye movement, but was not aware she had any pain, my vet thought it could have been petit mal seizure, it was good that you were around at the time, so you can reassure her, it upsets me so much to see this terrible condition, cause so much heartache, sending lots of love and hugs from us all karen,ruby and sadie :lotsaluv:
Sorry to hear Kayleigh hasn't been doing so well. The changing pressures has had a negative effect on Misty too. She back to full doses of Tramadol to settle her down, but she's still quieter than normal.
Give Kayleigh a gentle hug, and I hope she's feeling better soon.

Happy to see that Kayleigh is a bit better. Hoping for a steady improvement. Thinking of you both.
Thinking of Kayleigh and hoping that she is improving.
Oh no; that's so distressing :(. And very stressful for you. I hope she is much better now. :flwr:
We really appreciate all the good wishes and kind posts, and I'm sorry to say that [FONT=lucida grande, tahoma, verdana, arial, sans-serif]Kayleigh is not doing as well as we would like
[/FONT]She had a bad night Weds, was very restless, and panting. I put her on her back on a very soft pillow - sometimes this reduces the pressure. She also had extra pain medication but it didn't help.
We telephoned the vet first thing Thursday, and he agreed that we should try steroids. [Previously these were used more often as a treatment but obivously the side effects are a huge consideration. Ideally the dose is reduced and then given alternate days to help the body to cope.]
Methylprednisolone is shown on Clare Rusbridge's treatment algorithmhttp://www.veterinary-neurologist.co.uk/syringomyelia/docs/treatalgo.pdf
We started it Thursday and haven't really seen any improvement yet. Unfortuantely Kayleigh is already drinking a considerable amount more water, and urinating more frequently [side effects], she went out three times in the night between 11pm and 6am :( Despite that she still wet the bed. I know she can't help it, we are now covering everything with incontinence pads.
We are keeping her quiet and really hoping that the steroids will help. . Surgery is not an option.
Please keep her in your thoughts, she's only 3 and it is so hard to see them suffering.
Oh Nicki, my heart is breaking for you. I know you are doing all possible to help Kayleigh and keep her from suffering. I am praying for you and hope the steroids will help.
