    DefaultPrayers Needed For Drifter....

    I am sad to inform you that Drifter (some of you may know him) is in the animal hospital, and is looking bad.
    This morning I fed the dogs, and did everything normally, Drifter was normal at that time. About an hour later, he was found unconsious, on the ground, and panting very, very hard, not moving, and not coming to at all.
    He would not move, and was not consious at all. We tried calling him and coaxing him to get up, but nothing. We immediatly called th e vet and rushed him off the the animal hopstial. He was not able to walk, or even 'come to' at all, so they carried him inside with a stretcher.
    After about a half hour the vet wanted to see us, he informed us, that he was basically 'stumped' at what this could have been caused by.
    The vet thinks it either could be, something neuorological (either he was born with a disease, or trauma to the brain), possibly Epilespy, but he has no history of it, nor in his lines, the vet said he doesn't think that's it though, since the seizure is lasting this long, and is so sudden without warning, which is not common.
    Or the vet said he could've been hit, or fallen off of something, we ruled those two things out, since we have nothing he could fall from, and we certainly don't hit, or let anyone or thing hit our dogs.
    He also suggested maybe snail poisoning, but we don't even have that, so we ruled that out as well.

    We, and the vet have absolutly no clue to what have caused this. The vet cannot do any tests, since he doesn't know what he is even looking for. Drifter is still in the vets office, he has been unconsious for about 6.5 hours. His heartbeat, temp are all in perfect check, so why the unconsiousness??! His breathing slowed a slight notch, but has risen again.
    The vet has put him on an IV catheter, and is waiting for the next thing, whatever it may be. He has not improved nor worsened since we have taken him in.

    All we can do is pray now. The vet says he might not make it, he doesn't know. He might live, it's all just time now.
    We are very, very saddend by this, and hope there can be some way of putting a happy end to it.

    Please keep our Drifter boy in your Prayers and thoughts today....

    Oh my goodness! How frustrating it must be for you. I certainly hope they can find out what is wrong and that he recovers quickly.

    I did some Googling (a hobby of mine) and found some info you might be interested in. Hopefully I am not being too forward, but here's an interesting article I found: http://www.petplace.com/dogs/coma-st...ogs/page1.aspx

    Fingers crossed he recovers soon!

    Can you get him to a neurologist or teaching hospital? I would pack him up and take him to a specialist immediately.
    I truly wish you both all the best and please keep us posted on his progress. We will be thinking of you.
