Ladybug, Ladybug ...


I was going to email everyone about our springer spaniel Ladybug but then i thought I will just put it on the blog so I just have to enter it one time. Ladybug went to the vet today. She is going to be 9 yo in June. Anyway, for the past 2 nights, Ladybug hasn't been acting right. She has been pacing the floors ALL NIGHT LONG both nights and the only way I could get her to lie down was for me to lay down with her on the floor. She was still wearing that cone and just banging into everything while she was pacing. She was sniffing more than normal and just seemed very disoriented. Last night was worse than the night before so off to the vet we went this morning. They saw first hand how she acted. She did it right there at the vet. They all agreed this was not the normal laid back Ladybug. They did some blood tests. All came back ok. She had a few raised levels but nothing to cause this. She thinks its one of 2 things, she is possibly having seizures or she has the symptoms of vertigo. There isn't anything they can do for vertigo but if she is having seizures they can put her on medication. So now we just wait and see how she does the rest of the week. She did fine the rest of the day. So maybe its over. They took her stitches out from last week and the cone is long gone so maybe she was just having "cone anxiety". lol All I know is we all need to get some much needed rest, her included!!!

Poor sweet Ladybug! I've been concerned about her. I'm so glad you took her to the vet. She is such a beautiful girl. I could look at her all day!
