I started on this group so excited about my new puppy, Milo.
Unfortunately, things have taken a less positive spin.
At the end of July, Milo started having seizure-like episodes. He is just 4 months old. His eyes twitch, his head bobs and he falls over. I have a lot of video if anyone is interested. He triggers them when shaking his head violently when playing with toys. I went to the vet and they tested for liver shunts, and low blood sugar and he was fine. They did an xray of his heart, which was also fine.
I then went to a neurologist who did an xray of his spine/neck and that was all clear as well.
He is currently on clonazepam (at first we thought Episodic Falling Syndrome but now we don't-- although the medicine helped). Now we are testing an anti-seizure medication.
The next step is an MRI. I am located in the Boston area and am looking for a cheap MRI place. I found the Canine Chiari Institute at the Long Island Veterinary. My neurologist does suspect the Chiari Malformation as a possibility. Has anyone worked with them before? I know the doctor does an appointment before the MRI and will give you a bunch of testing, plus the MRI for $1500 if he believes it is a chiari malformation.
Any other advice?
Thanks so much!!!
