At a young age we noticed Tiki's head was abnormal. He was the only boy of a litter of 3 pomeranians. Once the others started learning how to walk we noticed he wasn't being as active as the others. We figured he was late bloomer. However, as time progressed his eyes started separating even more as his head grew. His eyes were also drooping into the lower eye lids. We took him to several vets and they didn't want to give him his vaccinations. Every single vet recommended a specialist because they believe he has Hydrocephalus which means he may have water in his brain. These vets have also given us the option to put him to sleep because of the amount of money needed for surgery. This is painful to him and causes frequent seizures which may end up resulting in his death.
I've already experienced two seizures so far and it's very scary. Seeing this little puppy tense up and shake like crazy is sad knowing there's nothing I can really do. He also wobbles when he walks and can't keep his balance which causes him to fall all the time. I'm always worried because he falls on his head which can cause more trauma in the brain and make his condition worse.
They have referred him to Texas A & M Neurology. He will need an MRI of the brain and whatever surgery is needed for recovery. They have told us he may need multiple surgeries. We truly believe he can make it and the vets say he has a chance. We have tried finding him a different home with someone willing to pay for his surgery. We haven't had any luck finding him a new home and we're running out of time.
He needs everyone's help and deserves a chance to experience life. Thank you for listening and your support.
