Carrier In Emerg

Recommended Posts

Carrier appeared to be really out of it and had a strange episode like a seizure - falling down and bracing himself, but not convulsing. I rushed him off to the vet and they told us that he was stable at the moment and to just keep an eye on him. Later in the evening he another episode and then completed fell over on his side when he tried to stand. We called the emergency and were able to get in touch with Dr Hosoya at OSU, but he stabilized after that so we decided to just monitor him through the night as going to the emerg vet in out town was not the best place and we worried that taking him there might be worse.


he is showing signs of arrhythmia (sp?) according to OSU and our local vet and had a very hard night last night from 5am onwards. He had his breakfast without problem and was able to go out and do his pee and poop. And then had another 2 episodes. His gums and tongue went blue and returned to red in about 10 second. We were getting ready to go to OSU as our local vet couldn't get and heart test until tomorrow so we figured might as well go to the best place and get all the right answers at once. Just as we were ready to get him in the car, he collapsed and Tim held him in his arms and felt his heart stop for about 20 seconds. We called our local vet and said that were going to rush him over - they had just at that time got us on an emergency appointment at the Vet Emergency Clinic about 45 minutes from us. We stabilized him and drove as fast as possible to get him there before another episode happened.


We are sitting in a pub up the road from the clinic waiting for his results as they were going to take over 2 hours. They are doing blood work, ultrasound, echo (ecg) and an ekg is in the works right now. We were able to see him before we left and he was stable and did lift his head for us when we came in to see him.

The critical care vet is actually a vet from OSU - her best friend is head of one of the departments at OSU, so I know that he is in good hands and they are also consulting with OSU.

We are scared.

Please say a prayer for Carrier he needs them. I will let you know once we come back home - not sure if he is coming with us or not as of yet.

Did Carrier's chemo include Adriamycin? It causes heart damage in a % of the patients.



He did but he was switched to Carbo at the end of Jan - he had two treatments with carbo. they detected a heart murmur and also a mass at the base of his heart back in december... they don't know yet if the mass has grown and is causing this or if it's something else.
