He stayed the night and saw a neurologist in the morning. The neurologist told us it was most likely an auto-immune disease but he wasn't sure. We opted out of an MRI and Spinal Tap since it cost around $3,500. We took him home and started him on a steroid medication for it and he only got worse. He started having tremors on the right side of his body and was unable to do anything like walk or even sleep. We went back to the emergency pet hospital and decided to get an MRI and spinal tap since nothing was working and we had no idea what was wrong.
The results came back and it confirmed that he had an immune-mediated disease causing inflammation in his brain resulting in the tremors in his body and affecting his ability to walk or do anything. This disease is caused by reasons unknown and just happens. He is still tremoring and struggling to walk so we're hoping that we can find a solution for him.
Poki's vet bill came out to almost $6,000. Anything helps so please consider supporting Poki and helping us out! He means the world to me and I just want my boy back to full health.
