Enzo Update

Enzo is taking homeopathic remedies for the symptoms of his stroke, and he's getting better. He was able to eat on his own today, and his walking isn't quite so wobbly. The vet thinks he has partial paralysis of his left side, which is why his left eye doesn't look so good. It's slow, but he's getting a little better everyday.

Enzo had a stroke last Monday, after a stressful visit to the vet for a fungal ear infection. Now he can't walk without falling over, and he can't eat or drink on his own. I have to hand feed him with a syringe. It looks like he may have lost vision in his left eye, and he lost his hearing. He couldn't hear much before, but now he can't hear at all.

It's been an incredibly stressful week, trying to figure out what was wrong with him, and then trying to figure out what to do about it. I'm treating him with homeopathic remedies. He's old, and I doubt he'll be able to make a full recovery, but I'm hoping that he'll at least be able to eat and drink again.

He's handling it much better than I am! He seems confused about what has happened to him, but he doesn't have the worry and grief that I have.
