    I've been ckecking about other vet hospitals here. The vets I am using do referrals to Ocean State Hospital, who are all specialists. Sandi(Freedom) had her Sugar's cataract surgery there & said they are very good, of course $$$ too. and our current vet also mentioned Angell Memorial, if we wanted to have more extensive procedures done.
    Saw my cousin over the 4th, he took his lab to West Bridgewater Vet Hosp, which isn't too far from here. He said within minutes they diagnosed his dog for a condition that his reg. vet couldn't for over a year. My other cousin works with people from RI, checked with them yesterday & several mentined Mt. Hope vet hosp, at the north end of the island.

    Some of Sherman's tests came back, (with some unexpected results) and they are waiting for the results from one more. We are going back in this morning in about 45 minutes. Today is my b-day, and the best present I can think of would be that they figured this out & my boy is gonna be alright! I'll post an update.

    short update....

    New x-rays still show fluid in lungs now spreading, although more diffuse than before, could be that it's breaking up, but the vet was not happy about it at all...all other organs look fine. Some other things regarding bloodwork they did not expect to see, don't want to get into it here.
    He's going over the xrays & test results with the senior vet, & still waiting to hear about the fungal panels...We should be getting additional calls from them today with more info.

    At this point, we are hoping it is fungal, it would explain the odd assortment of Sherms' symptoms.

    I have called our old vet in Ohio to see if he is seeing any animals with similar symptoms showing up there. His receptionist said it sounds like one other dog they are seeing, but who knows. He's calling back later.

    Still thinking of Sherman and you too Pat. I really hope that these vets can figure it all out. Poor boy, if only he could talk and tell them what's going on.

    This is so frustrating. Even the fungal tests came back negative. His old vet called back & hasn't seen any recent fungal cases in Findlay. (they had 1 case of it 4 mos. ago)

    In spite of his liver & kidney tests all coming back normal (except for one liver reading), Shermans legs are swelling. They are looking into possible explanations why, as he doesnt have any other signs of liver disease or protein leaking into tissues). Sherman is spending the afternoon in the vet hospital, getting intervenous antibiotics & an ultrasound to determine if his lungs are just full of the pnemonia stuff or if he is filling with fluids, which would not be good. I had a frank (friendly) discussion with the vet about alternative hospitals to take him to, including Ocean State, Tufts, & Angell. We are going to give this afternoon's antibiotics a chance to kick in, and they'll send home more aggresive antibiotics, but if this doesn't turn him around, then.....????

    (I'm skipping details, but fyi trachial wash, asperate lungs to culture, etc. were all discussed, too)

    Bottom line, we still dont know what the heck is going on.

    But - I'm sure that Sherman appreciates the fact that Mom & Dad aren't about to give up!

    Try not to get too discouraged ... there's bound to be a breakthrough soon.
    We'll just keep sending Prayers till he gets better!

    I'm sorry to hear that you haven't been able to figure out the problem yet. I know how frustrating that is. Hopefully a different vet could possible diagnose it, and hopefully Sherman will be getting back to his old self soon! Husky woos and kisses from Nebo and Keva to Sherman!
