Patient of the Day-Piper
This cutie is Piper. She is a 2003 Model, that initially came to see Dr. Lane on November 26th for subacute ataxia (lack of coordination), nausea, and a head tilt. After diagnostics were performed, Dr. Lane was able to rule out an inflammatory CNS cause or a mass lesion. Sometimes the causes of neuro signs can be idiopathic (of unknown cause). We started her on a steroid trial and her balance and head tilt have improved. She is a happy and energetic dog that loves to come into the VRCC holding her leash in her mouth. It is pretty adorable!
