Hi Everyone

A friend of mine who has a Havanese has been going through some tough times with her boy Duke. The official diagnosis now is that he has myositis - and am wondering if anyone here on the forum can shed some light / share their experiences. She is worried sick.

The dog suddenly got sick and was unable to really move.....they ran lots of tests and blood work and thought it might be spinal meningitis but now this result...they don't know how or why this happened.

He is on prednisone and some other medicines that may have to be 'long term'....

She said on the new medicines he is much much better but is not the same as he was - he is constantly hungry and is not his usual playful self....

Was really just hoping to see if anyone with Havanese experience in this could tell me more....
