Default Prayers for my sweet Hanna

Hanna has not been feeling well for a few days. She has been super needy (for example coming up to the office just to hang out. Usually she wants something). Or acting like a frail baby. Instead of the ass kicking drill seargent she normally is.

She is licking her nose a lot which tells me she is nauseated. Today she started losing her balance in the rear, sort of like limping but weirder.

Could be vestibular Disease a type of inner ear problem that clears up on its own. Blood work today was fine. Checking for tick borne disease tomorrow.

This morning she greeted me in her usual style, jumping up on the couch, getting some petting and then leaping over the back of the couch to escape.

She is 8 years old. She is the all black beauty and the sweetest most loving dog weíve ever had. She brings baby animals in from the woods like sheís their mama, carrying them in her powerful jaws without a scratch. (Possum last week).

We spend every night together in bed nuzzling and just holding each other. She loops her front leg around my neck. I pet her ears and tummy.

Pray itís just vestibular. I canít lose her yet. Even Shadow knows somethings up. He continually checks on her, even giving her light kisses on the nose (and this dog never licks). He sits looking at her and whines. Then he shoves his nose up her butt. (Not sure thatís a sign of concern. Just the usual dog butt drilling)

We gave her some anti nausea medication and she is stoned Blue. I had to carry her out to go potty. She weighs about 85. Now she is on the bed with me. She will sleep right next to me all night so I can keep an eye on her.

Prayers please. She is worth it. She brings a feminine touch to the pack. When sheís gone my heart will be broken again and Iíll probably get another military dog from Germany. They only bring back dead stuff. Like an elk. Or a Nazi.

Iíve lost so many GSDs that starts with these kinds of symptoms. Iím hoping itís just something minor. Poor thing took anti nausea meds and was unable to walk. I carried her our side to go potty.

Today she seems better but not drinking and having trouble walking. I gave her broth mixed with water and she sucked it down.

There is a good chance itís case of vestibular Disease. Hoping it passes in a few days. Vet agrees.

One thing I found out. She is too heavy to carry. She is resting comfortably now.

Iíll keep you posted. The prayers are working.

Have you been using anything with eucalyptus like a room defuser? I've read where eucalyptus is toxic to pets, making them have similar symptoms.
