    No webpage that I am aware of.

    I have found an article that links to the facebook group.. maybe try that? The link is just after the photos, above the 'Breaking News' headline

    She's been doing really well, although she threw up her dinner the night before last. It wasn't associated with any loss of balance like it has been in the recent past though, so hopefully its not related to VS. She didn't want to eat any dried food the next day but seemed happy to eat treats. We changed her dried food yesterday and she polished it all off. It's weird that she seems to be fussier than she used to be with dried food since these VS episodes have been occurring. She used to eat anything and everything we gave her.

    Hope Demi is still imroving!!
    My mum took their dog Roxy to the vet today for a check-up, he is amazed at how much she is improving! Last month he told mum not to bother with vaccinating or heartworm treating Roxy anymore as she only had a few months left in her, today he suggested that she might want to vaccinate her he said that he is seeing a lot of good research about turmeric and that it will take 6-8 weeks before it completely starts working.

    Our cat Oliver has a very yellow nose today, I think he licked the dog's bowl clean this morning and there was a bit of turmeric left in the bottom

    Lol @ Oliver. That's great news about Roxy!

    An update on Demi: we took her to another vet tonight for a second opinion, who pretty much reiterated most of what we'd already been told, but she did mention that the symptoms I described in relation to her last turn sound more like mini seizures and could indicate something more centrally located and more serious. Obviously none of this can be confirmed without scans etc which probably aren't a realistic option for a dog her age. She had a close inspection of her ears and while she admitted that an inspection is not definitive, she said she hasn't been displaying any other kinds of behaviours or symptoms that would be consistent with an ongoing ear infection. But basically she was happy with how she's travelling and just told us to keep doing what we're doing and play it by ear as to her happiness/quality of life etc.

    Hi BPear,

    My dear old dog Kodi had a vestibular attack or stroke as my vet liked to call it. She had it about 4 or 5 months ago. We came home to find her on the floor unable to get up and her bowels and bladder had let go.

    We thought she had slipped on the lino, we had put mats down everywhere except for this one spot and she had decided to walk there and either slipped (she was wobbly in the back end most of the time anyway), or had had the attack and gone down.

    It took her a good day for her legs to support her weight again.
    She had an obvious head tilt and couldn't walk in a straight line for about a week. I took the week off work so I could follow her around and support her. As her eyesight wasn't the best this didn't help with her walking straight either. After about a week and a half she was pretty well back to normal. Her head tilt disappeared.

    I had her put down nearly two months ago. She started having seizures when she would get up. They would last between 15 to 30 seconds and her bowels and bladder would go at the same time. Then she started having diarrhea as well.
    We found out at the vets that her liver was buggered. They said it couldn't be fixed.

    I'm not telling you her story to alarm you, just thought it might be useful.

    I now realize that her symptoms of her liver failure were there for a while, i just didn't know what to look for.
    She was loosing weight no matter how much she ate, she would sometimes make a retching noise after eating , like she was trying to throw up but never did. Her stomach seemed bloated. She was happy right up until the last week which she spent most of at the vets. The seizures and diarrhoea started in the last week.

    Liver problems will show up on a blood test and also an ultrasound which is what Kodi had.

    Hope this may be of some help.
    If you think dogs can't count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then giving Fido only two of them. ~Phil Pastoret
