My girl Noel, aka "Sweet Pea" most likely has a brain tumor. About a month ago I took her to the vet because her eyes were super goopey..mostly her right eye. Noel, who's age is not certain but around 8 or older, has severe allergies, but her eyes did not ever get like this..The vet stained her eyes and found a small cyst on the bottom of the right eye. We treated that eye for the cyst, and the other eye for the allergy and she was getting a bit better. The cyst healed quickly, but both eyes again got goopey and we switched up the drops for a few weeks. I thought all was well, but last week the eyes gooped up again and she became quite depressed. She stopped getting up when we came home and was hard to wake up from sleeping. Her appetite was still fine. Then last Thursday she had two episodes of head tremors. Our vet referred us to a specialist. After examining her the specialist is quite sure that there is either a tumor or inflammatory brain issue going on. We did blood work, which all was good. I would not allow an MRI because Noel had a minor surgery back in April to remove a benign lump and had a very difficult time with the anethesia--including a seizure. I thought I was going to lose her that night and will not have her put under again. The specialist vet said (in hindsight) that might have been an early sign of the brain problem. We started her on Prednisone on Tuesday evening..there was a noticeable difference after the first dose, and she is acting like her normal self today, just three days later--her right eye is still a little droopy. The Specialist said we could expect a few weeks to a year for our sweet girl. I can't help but feel there is a clock ticking in the background, but for now we are ignoring it and enjoying every day as it comes. As in the past, I have come here to read a lot of threads with similar situations and have learned what to expect and gained advice how to be prepared. I will try to keep Noel's story updated too. Noel is a special girl, she was a puppy mill momma who was rescued by a boxer rescue who saved her and got her healthy and blessed us with her. We have been enjoying her new most wonderful life for two years. She is the sweetest dog and it breaks my heart she has to have this fate.
