Case of the Week

Last week a dog owner called us in panic because her elderly dog (Shelby) suddenly had difficulty walking and was falling over. She was also tilting her head, the eyes were rotating in a circle and flicking back and forth, and up and down. 
The owner thought that her dog might be having a stroke. We had her come over immediately. Doctor Neumeister did an thorough exam, because (other then stroke) these symptoms could also point to conditions like infections, tumors or inflammatory diseases. Dr. Neumeister was relieved to report that her diagnosis was neither of the above concerns, but instead was Benign Idiopatic Vestibular Syndrome. It refers to a sudden, non-progressive disturbance of balance. It is more common in older dogs, and is also referred to as old dog vestibular syndrome.

This was great news because the symptoms of this condition seem really bad, but it usually gets better on its own with little or no treatment! Click here to read more...

Here's a cool video we recorded the other day!

During an Ultrasound on a client's dog we captured a drop of urine passing from the kidney to the bladder.

Oral disease will affect the overall health of your pet greatly. Especially heart-, liver- and kidney disease can be the result of bacteria from bad teeth. Call us at 563-582-8417 to have Dr. Neumeister examine your pet's mouth to see if a dental cleaning is needed.
