Hello all - first time poster. I am in desperate need of advice to address my Berner's health issues and restore my sanity from lack of sleep. My Berner is a three and a half year old female that has been spayed. She has been exhibiting signs of pain and odd behaviors for the last two and a half weeks. Symptoms: - Heavy panting - Hypersalivation - Pacing around the room - Restlessness - Sudden movements...seems to be running away from something - Shaking rear leg (only at times) - Odd behaviors such as opening and closing doors - Seeking attention She has been to the vet and emergency vet a collective 5-6 times in the last two and a half weeks, but the causes of these symptoms has not been identified. She is eating normal, drinking water and has normal bowel movements. Her urination cycles were more frequent a week and a half ago as she was diagnosed wih a urinary tract infection through urinalysis. Amoxicillin was prescribed to treat the UTI, and worked effectively. A urinalysis performed yesterday showed the UTI was gone although some small crystallizations remained. Rimadhyl was also prescribed initially as an anti-inflammatory, but did not address the other issues after seven days of use. It was discontinued. X-rays were taken a week ago and gastritis was diagnosed. The x-rays showed no stones in the bladder. I also had an x-ray of the hip due to an injury when she was 18 months old. She broke her femoral head in the back right leg where it connects to the hip socket. There is now arthritis and a bone spur off the socket. It is unsure if this is the cause of the pain, but she has been very stiff in this leg. We were given four possible rationales for drivers behind the symptoms. 1) Gastrointestinal issues - the vet prescribed Gabapentin to address the gastritis. 2) Pain - acepromozine was prescribed to address the pain symptoms. The vet said we could try tramadol if that did not work. 3) Behavioral issues - we are expanding daily exercise from about 30 minutes over the last couple weeks (due to below zero temperatures and exercise restrictions from vets) to one and a half hours per day. We may consider a dog walker or doggy day care if the walk change does not help. 4) Neurological issues - she seems to be sensitive to sounds and behavior is erratic at times. The vet said a spinal tap could be performed, but that would be expensive and may not be conclusive. I am at a loss for how to proceed forward. We are giving the meds to try to make the pain tolerable, but it is still there and is not getting better. What I would rather do is find the root cause of the pain. Has anyone experienced similar symptoms that could suggest issues to research? Thanks in advance for your help, and for reading this long post.
