Thanks to Jennifer for sharing this great story of her dog, Lilly Mae's recovery from a fibrocartilaginous embolism (FCE). While recovery from FCE (and other neurological conditions, such as IVDD) is quite common, understandably most people prefer to put this difficult period behind them and we don't get to share these important stories.
Tell us about Lilly Mae's experience with FCE
Today we talk to Jennifer and find out what it is like to look after Molly, who was recently diagnosed with fibrocartilaginous embolism (FCE), as well as a newborn baby. She shares her story and the handy products that have helped their growing family adjust to their new way of life.
Can you tell us a bit about Molly?
Today we speak with Kindel about life with Edna. Edna has cerebellar hypoplasia which is a congenital disorder in which the cerebellum (the part of the brain responsible for coordination) does not fully develop. In Edna's case her cerebellum is almost non-existent.
Cerebellar hypoplasia in dogs is often not noticed at birth and only becomes apparent at around 6 weeks of age when they become more active. Dogs with cerebellar hypoplasia can appear uncoordinated and display jerky movements, or tremors.
Kindle is a great example of the fact that while there is no treatment for dogs with cerebellar hypoplasia, with a little extra care they can often go on to live happy lives.
What is a regular day like with Edna?
