[SIDE EFFECTS] My Daisy, my 7 year old doberman pinscher, was very active and healthy running & jumping, then May 30, 2009 she woke up paralyzed on the rear end. On April 20, 2009 she was vacinated for rabies, DHLPP plus Lyme and deworm pyrantel pamoate. She was so very sick. She drank some water and ate very little on May 30. My vet came over on May 30 and gave her a steroid shot and an inflammation shot, took her blood, put frontline on her to kill any infected ticks and said she may have tick disease, so it wait and see how she would do in the next week(the blood he didn't test, after I told him too because her blood went bad, his wife said) She had no control over her bowels, etc. The next day she was completely paralyzed. Then the next day she went back to weakness and rear end paralyzed. For the next two weeks she ate and drank some and I lifted her rear end and gave her a little exercise and took her outside to go to the bathroom. She would drag her rearend around outside after for a little exercise. After two weeks she wasn't any better so I took her to a vet who does accupunture on June 16, 2009. He took xrays, no injury, urine test. After he treated her with accupunture she started trying to walk two days later. She was on Doxycycline for 30 days and had 6 accupunture treatments, from June to October. After the second accupunture treatment she was starting to walk, but wobbly and after the 4 I didn't have to hold her rear end up anymore!! So with my nursing and therapy care I gave my best friend, today, March 18, 2010, she is a miracle, she is running and trying to jump again, but still has to really concentrate at doing certain tasks.
My accupunture vet states the vaccinations could have caused this nervous/neurological system disease to my Daisy, my doberman!
PLEASE advise any advice or opinion you may have to me ASAP! THANKS.
