Oh NO! I am so sorry especially since she was doing so well maybe this was a brain tumor situation after all. I know this hurts really bad and I and others here can surely feel your pain. She will always be with you, as long as she lives in your heart she is never fully gone. Our condolences

We are here for you for sure I can probably speak for everyone here we have all been there at one time or another losing our precious babies. I hope you be able to come to some peace with this it sounds like she had a wonderful life with someone who loved her and a lot of dogs don't get that. I am sure she is at peace now.

Oh no, I'm so very sorry to hear this. So sorry for your loss of your beautiful girl Maya. It's so hard, especially when you think everything is going to be ok and then it isn't. Please feel free to reach out to me directly if you need someone to talk to. I know how you feel, it's never easy and it's especially hard at the beginning like this, such an incredible void is left in your life. I'll be thinking of you.

I am so sorry for your loss, having gone thru this too a year ago I know the pain. We have a canvas portrait of our Kai hanging in the kitchen (made by Walgreens). It has brought tears and smiles on our faces over the past year. Your Maya has left her paw print not he hearts of your family...may she run free!!!

We got a beautiful white deaf boxer female. She is 8 years old. I was wondering if you could give us some advice. Last Thursday she slept all day. When she did go out into the garden she was very unsteady on her feet and seemed disorientated. Friday she was still the same but toppled over. We immediately took her to the vets who done bloodwork and checked heart lungs etc but all was fine with the results. Gave her injections of pain killers antibiotics and anti inflammatory. That evening she seemed to look like she was going to sit but not like her back legs were weak. we had followup appointment next morning. The vet said it's neurological either lesion on her brain a tumor or a stroke prescribed antibiotics and steroids. She is completely back to her old self. The vet basically said she will be on steroids for the rest of her life. She has had a lot of ear infections but apart from that she has been perfectly healthy. Have you had any experience with anything like this? please advise
Julie, look into a thiamine deficiency as it applies to your pet's imbalance symptoms. Two forms of thiamine, sulbutiamine and a TTFD form called Lipothiamine are more efficient passing through the blood/brain barrier. Magnesium is needed to activate thiamine. Also, liposomal vitamin C will strengthen her blood vessels reducing chances for a hemmorrhagic stroke and improve her immune system. Liposomal vitamin C is less likely to cause gastric upset. She is probably producing a much lower level of C making her more prone to infections. Check with your vet before using any supplement.

Julie, I didn't "read ahead" responding to your post. i am so sorry for your loss. We experienced our 13 year old boxer's loss after a brief illness. I was hoping the information I shared would be in time for yours as I learned about it too late for ours.
