Comments: Sky, a 12-year old male lab, presented with seizures, was unable to walk at times and drooled excessively. We conducted a cat scan. The results of the scan showed life-threatening swelling of the brain. Within the next hour, Dr. Donop had performed a spinal tap which showed bacterial meningitis. Sky’s brain swelling was decreased with rapid acting diuretics, antibiotics, and steroids.
Follow Up Care: Sky was prescribed with antibiotics, steroids, and diuretics.
Updates: Sky is doing very well and is back to his normal self.
