Back on June 10th, my vet diagnosed Sasha with IVDD, basically a ruptured disk. I have an appt to see a surgeon for a consultation on Thursday. In the meantime, my regular vet did her blood tests again because her white blood cell count was at 24,000 when we got the test results back after her diagnosis. He put her on an antibiotic called Orbax and she finished it on June 30th. On July 1st, I took her in to have her blood drawn and my vet just called to tell me that her white blood count is now 29,000. He asked if I was still taking her to the consultation with the surgeon and I said I was. He said he was interested to see what the surgeon thought of her test results and mentioned menangitis.
Sasha is on Pred and she is doing well with 1/2 of a 20 mg tablet once a day at night. In the morning she has a big smile on her face and her tail is wagging like normal.
Has anyone had a Cav with menangitis? Also, is there anyone out there from CA that is familiar with Southern California Veterinary Specialty Hospital in Irvine? We are taking Sasha to see Dr. Berry.
