regarding possible Woobler's Syndrome. Lab Rescue's vet was at the picnic today and I asked what he would do in my situation. Remember that the vets at the specialty clinic I took Nellie to wanted to inject dye in her spine and do an MRI and I refused after numerous other tests turned up negative. Since I have not let her run too much she has no longer had any collapses. I decided that her quality of life is good and God knows what she would suffer after dye injections. The vet I use says she could possibly be having partial seizures.
Well LRR's vet said he would do just as I've done. He also said he has never heard of a dog having "partial" (whatever that is) seizures after exercise. I'm so glad I spoke to him because I've been feeling guilty about not taking her back to the specialty vets.
I think what you are doing is working so I'd leave well enough alone.
You know what you're doing, mom. Carry on.
