Jager is an 8 year old male Schnauzer who was brought in on emergency yesterday, displaying back pain after being jumped on by his housemate. Following MRI evaluation this morning, Jager went straight to surgery to repair a disc in his cervical spine. He is recovering quietly this morning, snug in a bug with his blankets, hot water bottles and enjoying not being in the snow outside!

Buddy is an 8 year old male English Bulldog that experienced his first seizure at the end of October. When Buddy continued to have seizures, even after being placed on an anti-convulsant, he was brought in to see us for an appointment this afternoon. Buddy came in as a sweet and VERY energetic boy that could hardly hold still for photos! We are hopeful that Buddy’s new combination of medicines will help control his seizures and we look forward to seeing him again.

Bandit is a 5 year old male Dachshund who came to us with no motor function or deep pain in his rear legs. He went into emergency surgery immediately, hoping to restore some function to his rear legs. A few days passed after surgery and Bandit was still not displaying any movement in his back legs. The techs and Dr. Lane weren’t ready to give up, however. Today, Bandit was placed in a paracart, and to their delight, took to it right away! Bandit raced around the hospital with enthusiasm before wearing himself out for a nap this afternoon.

This adorable lady is Vienna. Her dachshund brother had surgery with Dr Lane in 2009. Vienna heard that we have such a good time here at RMVN that she wanted to try it out as well! She went down in the hind end and was unable to move her legs on Friday afternoon. Vienna had emergency MRI and surgery early Saturday morning. She is recovering in the hospital now and is doing great. We think she agrees with her brother…this place is great!

This hard to resist face is Ginger Johnson. She is a bit shy at first but once you get to know her she is very sweet. She came to see Dr. Lane earlier this week for some neck pain. She was scheduled for a cervical MRI, diagnosed with an IVDE at C2-C3, then had her surgery on Wednesday. She has been doing great and looking forward to going home tomorrow.

Schultz is a 7 year old, male German Shepherd who was brought to RMVN unable to use his rear limbs. After evaluation via MRI, Schultz’s outlook seemed a bit grim, but it was agreed that surgery was his best chance at recovery. Surgery corrected compression on Schultz’s lower back, but internal infection had severely compromised the area and surrounding tissues. This story has a happy ending, however. Schultz now stands up to greet the techs for his morning and afternoon walks, and is going home to be with his family for the holidays.

This handsome gentleman is a 2-year-old MN Cornish Rex that was transferred to RMVN after some seizure activity was noticed by the ER team. Jesse’s seizures were very mild, and have responded well to medication while in the hospital. While the staff is very sorry to see this sweet boy go, they are thrilled that they are able to send him home.

This happy Dalmatian Mix is Mingus. Believe it or not, this handsome man is 13 years old. He woke up completely fine this morning, but after some time he couldn’t walk. He came to see Dr. Lane on emergency and is scheduled for a cervical MRI +/- surgery very early tomorrow morning. Get some rest Mingus, you have a big day tomorrow.

Little Frankie has had quite the busy weekend. He just adopted three little humans on Saturday, when he learned he couldn’t walk. His parents unfortunately had the same thing happy last year to his dachshund sister, Beth, so they knew they had to rush him in. He had his MRI and surgery early Sunday morning. Frankie is recovering great and is finally settling in. Hope to get you home soon Frankie.

If you couldn’t tell Scotchie is ready for Christmas. He had a Ventral Slot at the end of September and has completely forgotten he had surgery. Owners have found it hard to keep this little guy quiet. Dr. Lane is happy with the recovery! Bring on the presents, Scotchie.

This is Denver Levin. This little stud had spinal surgery in February this year. He has since fully recovered and comes every 6 months just to make sure he is continuing to do great. We sure do love the little coats he is always wearing. See you next year Denver!

This ball of fluff is Gidget, who came to see Dr. Lane because of falling, and imbalance and trouble walking. After an MRI of his brain and a Spinal Tap (CSF Tap), Gidget was diagnosed with a disease called GME, which causes inflammation of the brain and lining of the brain and spinal cord. Gidget will have to be on medications the rest of his life to treat this disease. What a cutie pie.

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!

This spry little Min Pin is Jasmine. She is being treated for GME, an inflammatory disease of the nervous system. It has been managed with medications up until recently when she relapsed. Jasmine needed to come see us again for more aggressive IV treatment. She is back today for a recheck and to check her blood count. Her balance is improving. She is happy, affectionate, and very eager for attention. Go Jasmine!

Walter is a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon who is a little frustrated with his confinement in the hospital, but he has to stay for a couple of days while he receives medications to treat his meningoencephalitis (inflammation of the brain and coverings of the brain). He’s already started to show some improvement on the medications and is expected to make a full recovery.

Keyser Schaffer first came to see Neurology a couple weeks ago and was diagnosed with 3 chronic compressed discs as well as Degenerative Myelopathy. He was started on steroids and today, his dad says he is almost back to 100%. Yay Keyser!

This is Sassy Schuster, an 8 year old spayed female Dachshund. She presented to the emergency department the evening of Monday, November 26, unable to stand on her hind limbs. By the time she transferred to us the next morning, Sassy had no motor in her hindlimbs and was unable to control her bladder. Sassy underwent emergency MRI and spinal surgery to repair her ruptured disc. Today, Sassy is wagging her tail, urinating on her own and trying to stand up. : )

Meet Fitzgerald. Would you have guessed he’s 14 years old? Yes, he is a lovable Border Collie that is a long time client of Dr. Lane. He has had multiple surgeries over the years and was presented today with vestibular signs. He is getting all the love in the world while receiving a daily exam from Dr. Lane. Way to go Fitz!!

Who is the cutest 4 year old Maltese ever? Macho!! Macho was admitted to Dr. Lane on the 16th of November. He was presented with a disturbance of brain function and having some issues with his cerebellum (balance center in the brain). Dr. Lane performed an MRI and a Cerebral Spinal Tap. He was been diagnosed with meningeoencephalomyelitis (inflammation of the meninges and brain). He has been monitored with a Cytosine drip and medications. We have recently decreased his drip and have placed him on regular fluids. Depending on his exam and comfort level today, we shall hope for the best and send him on his way home for a great recovery.

This is Charlotte, a 6 year old Border Collie mix who is a total love bug. She was admitted to Dr. Lane on the 12th of November, lying on her side and was not responsive. She was diagnosed with Leukoencephalitis. We are monitoring her and she is currently on her second dose of Cytarabine. She has a wonderful personality and is running around like the doll she is.

This is Ginger, a precious and adorable 9 month old Jack Russell Terrier. She is a previous client of Dr. Lane’s and came in yesterday for seizure activity. We have controlled her episodes with a Valium drip and she is under close monitoring and receiving plenty of TLC. Depending on her exam and comfort level, she is scheduled to go home today or tomorrow. Get better Ginger, you are such a sweetheart!!

Little Daisy Mae has been having trouble walking on her back legs for a couple of weeks and was being treated by Maxfund with medications. Unfortunately, medications did not help and LIttle Daisy Mae lost all function of her back legs this week. Dr. Lane performed an MRI and back surgery to relieve the compression of a ruptured disc. She’s a little camera shy this morning, but in very good spirits.

Remember little Hamilton? This adorable Frenchie was loved by everyone when hospitalized with us last week for seizures. He returned for a recheck this morning and is doing great. He’s acting more and more like a puppy every day, and has not had any seizures since going home. He is responding very well to the treatment for his inflammatory brain disease.

Broadway is a cute little puppy with an unknown history that was rescued by Maxfund from the streets of Denver. He has a neuromuscular disease and is responding positively to treatment. He is returning to Maxfund today for continued treatment and hopefully adoption!

Allie is a 10 year old female German Shepherd who was brought to us for weakness in the hind limbs. After MRI review, TWO disc issues were found (one chronic and one acute), and were addressed with surgery. Since her surgery, Allie has been improving steadily, gaining her strength back a little every day. She has been a perfect lady during her hospital stay, and the staff loves her.

This adorable little kitten is Stanley, who came to see us because he suddenly started having great difficulty walking. He is improving quickly and has won the hearts of just about everyone at the VRCC with his adorable face and wonderful personality.

Stanley Update! Remember Stanley?…the 4 month old Siamese kitten that presented with acute weakness in his hind limbs 24 hours following vaccination. He was diagnosed with Vaccine Induced Polyradiculoneuropathy, which was managed medically. Stanley improved quickly and was able to go home. He is back with us today for a recheck, and is bounding around his cage, purring like the perfectly healthy kitten he should be.

Say hello to Cleo. She is a 13.75 year old Piebald Dachshund who came in to us acutely down in her hind limbs. MRI was performed. It was determined that she had ruptured her L2-L3 intervertebral disc. A left Hemilaminectomy was performed to remove the pressure from her spinal cord. Cleo is recovering fine and expected to be walking soon. She is anxious to return home to her sister, Ginger who also ruptured and disc in her back and underwent surgery with Dr. Lane.

We tried to sneak up and take a picture of Libo while he was fast asleep (and snoring), but he awoke when we opened up the kennel. Libo started having trouble walking back in August. He progressively got worse despite rest and steroids. His family spent the last couple months raising funds to have his diagnostics done. When he was admitted he appeared to be cyanotic, therefore Dr. Lane requested an echocardiogram to be sure anesthesia would be tolerated. After he got thumbs up for anesthesia, MRI diagnosed IVDE at C3-C4 and surgery was performed. Anesthesia went without a hitch. We will give Libo a few days of rest before his rehabing begins. Chronic IVDE patients can take longer to regain function and strength. Send good thoughts Libo’s way!

This is Ruby, potentially the cutest miniature Daschund ever! She was having trouble using her hind legs and underwent MRI and back surgery on Wednesday morning to relieve a spinal cord compression from a ruptured disc. She’s feeling so much better, would like to run and play like normal and doesn’t understand why she’s not allowed to. She’s going to be a handful when she goes home.

This is little Poppy. She has seen several specialists at the VRCC for a multitude of congenital abnormalities. She has difficulty walking and her newest venture is to learn how to walk better with the use of this tiny para cart. She has been using it for a week now, and is starting to get the hang of it.

This is Dudley Phillips, a little beagle that Dr. Lane did back surgery on 2 weeks ago. He came in for suture removal on Friday and is doing great—as you can tell by his mom’s embroidery talent. 🙂

This precious little lady is Chancie Davis. She came to us on Tuesday for exercise induced weakness and mega-esophagus. She has since been diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis, a neuromuscular junction and neurotransmitter problem. She is doing great and should go home to her human mom and pop tomorrow.
