Continue to help mom Debra as she cares for her precious boy. In the Name of Adonai Rapha. God our Healer. Amen. <3 Caren
Debra Serrano Vertigo… He’s was much worse then this… 🐕😢 He’s still in need of prayers… 🙏 He is about 13/14 years old […] 2 1/2 months ago
He began showing signs for instance-he couldn’t get up to even walk forward as he was continuously going in circles 😢his head was tilted so far back and his eyes were just going back-and-forth so bad I was very scared and crying. I took him immediately to the vet. (Cont. below)
Exodus 15:26 And He said, “If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the LORD your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes,** I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I, the LORD, am your healer.” **If Jesus is our Lord and Savior we need only to believe fully in Him, then we will long to serve Him, He satisfied the law/commandments w/His sacrifice.
The vet diagnosed him with vertigo and to her observation she told me she was worried about his quality-of-life. I told her that I was taking him home and I was going to take care of him at home. I had to force feed him food and water by syringe -I made sure that he was hydrated as according to his body weight… yes I looked on the Internet for suggestions on how to help my baby. at first he refused to eat and drink , But I made sure that he had his meals every day – He couldn’t even walk on his back legs after a while he was so bad. If he need it to go out to use the restroom I carried him to his familiar place where he always went and stood by his side I kept talking to him so he was always in his familiar areas and hearing my voice… some days I questioned if I was doing the right thing because he would sleep a lot and I would wake him up just to force-feed him and give him water and then other days you could see that he was trying to do more things… the day that he gave me a kiss back when I asked for it was the day that I knew he was going to make it. So I worked with him just did a lot of doggy physical exercises with his body etc.
his walking on the video was maybe a month after He was diagnosed with vertigo from the veterinarian. I had him next to me on my bed morning -noon and night.
At night time when he would lay by me I would whisper in his ears and rub him up and down-telling him how much he is loved and what a good boy he’s been
And that his brother “Baby” loves him.
He has improved tremendously and has surprised the veterinarian of his progress. We’re not out of the woods and there’s still a long road ahead…

Wow that’s a lot of love! My hat’s off to you. Have you tried Meclizine? I get it myself and there are exercises that can be done for humans not sure about dogs.
I sort of based on what was done for humans as I have had vertical myself and just kind of thought what would be good for him.
I would hold him straight up centered – tilted him slowly to the left and then back centered and then to the right … the veterinarian told me this is caused by an inner ear infection .

Is the ear infection gone? With humans it’s often called benign positional vertigo from crystals in the ears
When he first got control of his back legs and started walking he would walk sideways at that time we did have a few laughs because he looked like a crab walking but I was so happy to even see him do that. Once he began to want to eat it was a little difficult for him because he wasn’t used to having his head tilted to the right so I had to change his eating position to make sure that he was getting his food correctly. It was a lot of learning experience.
