    Default Scally *may* have had a stroke

    I have just got back from emergency vet appointment and settled him. The little love seems pretty much back to his normal rather broken self but *touch wood* without any additional lasting effects.

    I heard some scrabbling and went to investigate a nd found him kind of slithering, trying to mobilise and panicking. Both back feet were at the same side of him and he could not stand. Only one front leg appeared to be working properly so his attempts at moving meant he was going in a circle. The vet did some neurological tests and his front legs responded differently, there was a definite lack of response in one. He was walking by then and had improved massively. I really thought I would lose him tonight when the 'episode' was happening. He was sat having a preen a few minutes ago having just polished off some coriander.

    He was also found to have a strange heart rhythm. The same vet saw him on Monday and he didn't have it then. This is quite worrying.

    Oh not poor Scally I really hope that he can pull through. I had a couple of Rabbits who had suspected CVAs and both managed to do so, albeit one did have lasting neurological deficits. Millions of vibes being sent xx

    Thanks all, I am pleased to report that Scally is his normal self this morning. Mobilising as he normally does and tucking into food etc. Though I have been warned that it may happen again.

    I'm pretty sure when she was explaining the details H said TIA but I could be wrong. I'd have to Google to remind myself of the difference between TIA and CVA. She had said it's not uncommon in older dogs but sometimes they make good recoveries. It wasn't something she had a lot of experience with in rabbits.

    A 'TIA' is a 'transient ischaemic attack'- a transient loss of blood flow to the brain. In many cases it does not cause permanent damage. it might be that the newly discovered heart arrhythmia is related to the possible TIA
