    URGENT!!! Adult Onset Hydrocephalus

    Hi everyone, Wilbur’s sister Layla waited 6 weeks for him to join her at the bridge, and now her wait is over. Last Tuesday I said goodbye to my sweet little man, at home and in my arms. In the end, he started to display many signs that his hydrocephalus was increasing, he started to vomit...

    URGENT!!! Adult Onset Hydrocephalus

    Hi all - another update for those following. Today is August 29 2018. We lost Layla 3 weeks ago (see my other thread on Lyme) and we are all having a very difficult time, and Wilbur especially. After about 9 months of being seizure-free, he has had 3 recently (July 15, aug 2 and 22). His...

    Asking for Advice (my bulldog keeps yelping)

    Does he have any other symptoms, such as seeming to be wobbly, or confused at all? Does this yelp happen as he’s TRYING to move, or he just does it for no apparent reason? Not to be alarmist, but this was the kind of symptoms Wilbur displayed before he was diagnosed with hydrocephalus (see my...

    Lyme Disease - even with tick prevention

    Three days ago, she gave us her parting gift- her very best effort to leave us as we knew her, trying so hard to be our happy healthy girl. She ate well, chewed her Nylabones, played with her brother...I thought she was healing. In the end, lyme took her legs, her kidneys, her liver and finally...

    URGENT!!! Adult Onset Hydrocephalus

    Hi all, just a quick update on Wilbur for those following ... it’s July 29 2018 and he is still going strong. His leukaemia is in remission, managed by a daily chemo pill. His hydrocephalus doesn’t seem to be causing him any issues either, although he did have a seizure two weeks ago (which I...

    Lyme Disease - even with tick prevention

    SHE IS HOME:) Layla was stable enough to come home yesterday (28th). She is very weak, thin and exhausted. She seems shell-shocked. She had an ok night, but she isn’t really eating, and she will have to go back to the hospital if that doesn’t change. Right now she has a UTI (which I hope clears...

    Lyme Disease - even with tick prevention

    @hellsonwheels Thank you so much, I will look into it. I hope she survives and can come home... she’ll have complications from this for the rest of her life.

    Lyme Disease - even with tick prevention

    Thanks everyone... today (July 25) she is still in the hospital. We go to visit her everyday and we brought Wilbur to see her as well. He is missing her so much. When we saw her Monday she seems a little better, but yesterday she was shivering again and very tired ... the specialist says her...

    Lyme Disease - even with tick prevention

    Freaking out.... I’m in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Both of the dogs are on flea/tick routine (nexguard) from April-November. This weekend my girl Layla was really lethargic (even more than normal for the insane heat we’ve been having). She stopped eating, wouldn’t drink, was so hot and wouldn’t...

    Chemotherapy used on bulldogs: please share your experience

    Ive posted our story in other threads, but here it is in a nutshell: Wilbur has chronic B-cell lymphocytic leukaemia. He is 6 1/2. To complicate things he also has hydrocephalus. He is on another med for the hydrocephalus but prednisone for both the cancer and the hydrocephalus, so he will...

    URGENT!!! Our bulldog Mack has been diagnosed with lymphoma

    I am so sorry to hear about Mack. I hope that he is feeling ok, despite this challenge. I don't have experience with lymphoma, but my boy Wilbur (age 6) was recently diagnosed with lymphocytic leukaemia (in October). He started having neurological symptoms (pain) suddenly one day and I didn't...

    Help Needed! BIZARRE GROWTH!

    Hi everyone, here is a little update for you about Wilbur’s growth. Essentially, it fell off!!! The first pic is from dec 23, and the last is yesterday. I spoke with my vet and showed her all the pictures (I kept a photo log) and she didn’t seemed surprised that it dissolved and fell off. She...

    That’s ok! Thank you for reaching out... i suspect we will be getting a biopsy regardless, it’s just too odd.

    Help Needed! BIZARRE GROWTH!

    Thank you all so much. I have been googling my head off. There are some similar pictures, and the hyperkeratosis is one. Thing is, this growth isn’t “hard”, it’s very soft. There are also pics of skin cancer tumors, and these look similar too. The growth itself doesn’t seem to bother him, rather...
