Patient of the Day: Greta
This brown-eyed beauty is Greta. Greta presented to Central Veterinary Emergency on January 6th with a recent history of lethargy, inactivity, and dullness, as well as decreased vision. CVES recommended a neuro consult, which was performed by Dr. Lane. Greta had an MRI and CSF tap on Wednesday. Dr. Lane diagnosed Left Frontal Encephalitis. She is being treated with an anti-seizure medication, a steroid and antacid, and a Cytabarine CRI (constant rate infusion). This is a lose dose chemotherapy agent that also treats inflammatory diseases. We put a very small amount of the drug into a fluid bag and Greta will receive two 12 hour treatments over a 36 hour period. She looks forward to her Mom coming in to visit.
