Has any of your Cavaliers ever had this Wobble?
Hey everyone, My kaytee is coming up for 10 now and has IBD, Syringlomelia, Heart Murmur and Severe Dry eye.
A few months ago we changed vets and our new vet has been fab, he did a full heart work up and we were given a few extra meds for kaytee, she was on Prilactone, Fortekor, Vetmedin, Frusemide and Prednisone (for her IBD).
After a while her blood pressure went low, She was put on some of the meds as originally her blood pressure was high. We spent a while tweeking meds and found that removing the prilactone made the blood pressure a bit more stable as my vet felt it was that causing it to go low. She has regular blood pressure checks.
Recently her fursemide went up (three days ago) Im not sure this has anything to do with any of what im gonna say next.
Since the change in drugs she has developed a "Wobble" its only ever in the evening at night time. At first my vet put it down to the blood pressure issues but he and I think its weird that its only at night. Its so hard with kaytee having so many health issues to point one out and say its that causing it.
Well here is a link to a short video I made when she was having the wobbles. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDagvTO8q9g (Not sure if it will play yet just uploaded).
When she is walking she is fine its only when she stands still in one place or when shes sitting up and awake. But like I said only in the evening today she is ok.
Has anyone seen it before? I am working through this with my vet but theres nothing like a little input from cavalier parents too!
Thanks xxx PS THE ONLY NEW DRUG SHE IS ON NOW IS FORTEKOR ONE BEFORE BED ABOUT 11.30 PM. ALL HER OTHER MEDS SHE HAS BEEN ON FOR A LONG TIME.
