When the doctor takes an XRay of my heart Chihuahua shirt !!! I just want to share something with you all to hopefully spread some awareness and just to see if anything like this happened to anyone else. 10 days ago my chi Lincoln woke up with a stiff neck. Assuming he ran and plays too hard we let it go all day. By 9pm we were at ER vet. He was lathargic and they did vitals and xray. Nothing so we went home with pain meds. Sunday was real bad. Heart breaking so we waited for Monday vet to open. Did tests all good. Nothing. Tuesday was the worst day of my life. He was rushed to an emergency specialty vet he had a spinal tap and MRI and he had menengitis.

Something you would never guess and neither did the vets since he was peeing, pooping and eating small bits of rice and burger. They got him on prednisone and so many meds and said “we will call you with a more favorable outcome tomorrow Mrs.Swan. 1 hour later I got the call I never wanted. we lost poor Lincoln to meningitis at age 4. 2 weeks after our wedding, 1 day after his brother Abraham’s bday and 2 months after his. Be aware of the signs and please tell me if anyone else has dealt with this. My heart is in 3 zillion pieces.
Chihuahua always in my heart
I am so sorry! The same thing happened to me 6 weeks ago. My baby was one week short of his 12th birthday. On a Thursday his tail and lower back started to bother him and was sensitive to the touch. By Saturday he stopped eating and we rushed him to the vet. No signs of anything. Sent us home, said maybe it was arthritis. By Wednesday he was shivering and whimpering, rushed him back, gave him pain meds, antibiotics, etc…took bloodwork, xrays, ultrasounds, scans. All came back fine. Unfortunately that meant it was neurological, probably meningitis.
The meds didn’t work and we could not break through the pain with multiple types and doses of pain meds. That Friday, just one week later we put him down. Saddest and hardest thing I’ve done, but I had to get him out of his pain. I’ve been crying for 6 weeks now. Never ever thought a dog would get meningitis. I’m so so sorry for your loss and the pan and heartbreak you are feeling! Be kind to yourself and mourn your loss. It’s ok. Have a good day with When the doctor takes an XRay of my heart Chihuahua shirt. Thank you!
