In Memory of Jameson Tyley

Saturday, November 8th Jameson woke up with a loss of balance, stumbling and randomly collapsing. Results of a full blood workup and urinalysis were completely normal.  After sedation and a deeper look into his ears, the vet also ruled out an inner ear infection. Fearing a bacterial or fungal infection in his brain or a brain tumor, he started a treatment of steroids and antibiotics. Two weeks later, we haven't noticed any improvement. As of Thursday, November 27th, his condition includes drooling, vomiting, trembling, facial paralysis, tilted head, weight loss, and disorientation.
We’re attempting a different course of antibiotics and a thyroid test tomorrow (11/28/14) which will be around $350. However, the vet has recommended that Jameson be seen by a neurologist at the University of Minnesota Veterinary Medical Center for an MRI. The cost of the MRI is $2,500.

This is an expense we’re not able to undertake on our own. Since the vet is unable to determine what is wrong with him, we’re hoping to get enough funding to take him to the U of M for an MRI and further treatment. Any help is appreciated.

We believe he deserves a chance at welcoming his 5th birthday in good health.
