Vet said looks like she may have suffered a small stroke and possibly has dementia. Now, I know how my dog acts and has been acting. Old vet never said neither thing. It is possible the stroke happened since our last visit to him, but im not sure. She has been acting more mopey than usual and today I got home and she looks bad. Found out she wouldnt take her arthritis medicine (she gets 1 chewable tablet a day) and she hasnt since Sunday.
Vet gave her a cortisone shot and said he wanted to see her past history. I just gave her a Pain Pill as well when I got home. Got her to eat her arthritis med as well.
Not sure whats left. Vet said we can start her on estrogen which might help her with eating.
Mind you she is 14 going on 15 in September. So she is pretty old.
