Oh baby Z

As if Zodiac doesn't have enough trouble getting around, when we came home last night we found he had come down with Geriatric Vestibular syndrome (if you don't know what this is I wrote about it a few years ago-you can find the link to the right). He had a pretty classical presentation of head tilt, nystagmus, ataxia, and circling.  We are treating him with Cerenia for the dizziness and carrying him out to potty and hand feeding him some canned dog food.  I would say he is marginally better today.  He has been able to stand up a little, his nystagmus is slowing down and he just generally seems more able to get comfortable and respond when we enter the room.

Please send prayers for a continued recovery!
