Hi Jackie, sorry to hear of Holly's troubles, is there a vet neurologist in your area that your vet can refer you to in regards to the seizures?

A vet neurologist can also do a specialized procedure referred to as brain auditory evoked response (BAER) testing, to test the extent and the area of the ear that is affected.

Allergies can also cause inflammation in the ear severe enough to close off tubes so the dog appears deaf in one or both ears.

The stomach ulcer could be stress/grief or she could have something else going on, how has she been treated for it?


FYI Intervertebral Disk Disease is not that rare, at least not in North America anyways :sad:


for Holly
