Poor you, Esumrall, what a dreadful scare; I do agree wholeheartedly with Karen re info on the internet; it IS good to try and educate ourselves, but it is SO easy to get into tangled states of over-imagining every horror. There's a happy medium, I guess, where one can manage to look stuff up but not take it all too personally. A little knowledge is indeed a dangerous thing. Once you have a definite diagnosis it'll be easier to find things out, but even then details will be different for your dog. I went through all of this with my first dog, Pamba, when she got a vanishingly rare disease called Protothecosis. It was so rare that there wasn't, in fact, much data out there. Which in some ways was a relief. I read it all, and it was all dire, but Pamba lived for two years with it where all the data suggested she would only have a matter of a very few months, so we did ok. MMM at least doesn't seem to be life-threatening, though I so sympathise with you having to go through dealing with such an difficult situation. Keep us posted on progress?
