Me again ... I am writing to ask for thoughts on my dog who back in August 2012 experienced some sort of disorientation.
Before I go there, i Just wan to follow up on her recent kidney issues... Doc called today to say that there are for sure problems with her kidney and liver as well as other issues prone to her breed (cocker spaniel). Levels are 'extremely high'. I have an appt to see him at 11 am tomorrow morning.
OK, so in August, 2 months after bringing a new baby home (just adding that in as my dog was very jealous of the new baby. They get along fine now tho my dog sometimes gets confused as to whom I am speaking), my dog 'Joy' had 2 episodes of what seemed like complete confusion. During the night, she was so restless. She would change resting places numerous times, up and down up and down, almost seemed as if she forgot where she was (we were staying at my parent's house for about 40 days at this point) atone time I thought she was losing her vision in her good eye (blind in one already), or I was thinking dimentia (dementia). She really seemed confused and out of it, hallucinations? Walking in her sleep? I dont know.
I did take her to the vet. He did not take blood at that point, checked her out as full as one can without testing blood and sent her home. Only now that we have the kidney issue did I decide to look at her records and this came as a reminder to me. I am wondering if it is related to her kidney/liver issues.
Has anyone ever exoerienced this sort of disorientation from their pet and what was the outcome? I am just trying to piece things together or to at least understand what might have been going on in august.
In any case, tomorrow to the doctor to find out what is going on. :( i cant stand how she often goes behind the table to lie down. Makes me sad.
