It's so nice to see all of the kind posts from you guys out there! Thank you.
Jake had more X-rays this morning. The vet was sure that he would find evidence of discospondylosis (a spot of deterioriation of the spine). To his surprise - nothing. The x-rays looked great. So now the vet has ruled it out. The vet is very hesitant to put Jake on steroids for Meningitis since this may have serious adverse affects on him. So instead, he opted to put Jake on two new antibiotics. We will give it 24 hours and see how Jake responds. Jake has lost 4 lbs in the past 10 days. We are getting very creative to entice him to eat. He won't touch normal dog food but he will eat people food. At this point, I don't care if it spoils him. He is becoming too skinny.
Does anyone have any information on Steroid Responsive Meingitis? What is the success rate of treatment? We are worried sick.
Thanks guys - please continue to send positive vibes, prayers, wiggles
