This past Thursday evening mom noticed that my sister Starr would be standing there and then almost fall over. Mom called our vet the minute they opened on Friday and mom took her to the vet. We didn't get great news. The vet put Starr's feet in different positions and a normal dog would move them back but Starr was very slow to move them. The vet feels that something neurological is going on. He told mom if she saw a neurologist we would be looking at over $1,000 in testing. Mom was so upset as we just don't have that kind of money. The vet offered another option of putting Starr on prednisone to see if that tells anything. Mom got Starr's pills and we started her on them yesterday. We haven't seen her fall over since she started the meds. Dad is calling the vet with an update today to see what he says. We sure would appreciate all prayers, good vibes, etc. Mom has been a COMPLETE mess since Friday.
