Pug Dog Encephalitis

Post  Corkey's Mom on 8/13/2011, 2:18 pm

Thanks for your replies Aussie Witch and Northern Witch. I have sent an e-mail to Dr. Greer. I will let you know if she responds. I hear you ladies about quality and not quantity. I am all about quality of life, I would rather have him for only 1 year, happy, healthy, bouncy, etc... than try to keep him around for 5 or 6 years pumped up full of drugs and feeling sick and puny all the time. I also don't want to do anything so aggressive that might send the PDE into remission but end up breaking another organ down such as the liver or the pancreas and have him end up dying anyway. I have an appointment for him next week with a DVM that specializes in TCVM. I believe in western medicine, but if what he has is terminal and western medicine has not been shown to cure it, then I would rather take an approach that balances both eastern and western medicinal practices and see how he does. I am still on the look-out for a doggy neurologist though because I want the honest, no kidding, prognosis for this disease. My analytical brain knows that everything I have read so far is doom and gloom, but my heart tells me to hold on to hope and to find a way to kick this PDE in the gut.

Maryann, you have gotten some great advice from folks here who are far more knowledgeable than I am. All I can say is that you and your boy will be in my prayers, and please keep us posted.

He's very lucky to have you as his mum. Yes, the prognosis is grim, but even when you accept the inevitable, the love we have for our babies means we never give up. Dr Greer is usually very good about responding. We're here for you.
