Not So Fast

We thought that my guzzling water days were behind us but I'm still drinking more water than I really should be. My vet thought it was Lyme disease related but now we're not so sure.   My Doxy med is all gone - today was the last day. 
Take a look at the photo of this Golden. Mom found the picture of him here

 The same thing is happening to me. This picture of me was taken on Thursday.  We were in Lenny and Joe's parking lot waiting for dad to return to the car.   
It's almost like this condition happened overnight.  The muscle tone over my eye is sinking and my eyeball is moving backwards into my eye socket and when I yawn, my eye rolls back and mom get totally wigged out and frantic. 
 On Friday, I saw my vet and he stole more blood from me.  It was only a month ago that he stole the first batch.  My eyes were given the third degree and so was my jaw.   I don't have any pain but my eye annoys me and I do paw at it.   
My blood test results are coming back in the normal range.  We are still waiting for results for one more test.
Of course, mom and dad are beyond concerned and the waiting for a diagnosis is tough. 
I still have all of my same energy when something fun and exciting is going to happen  - like my morning walkies or going to Lenny and Joe's for dindin, which was fun.  And I still get excited when it's meal time here.  Well, who doesn't like to eat, right!   I do sleep a lot more and mom and dad say that I'm just not myself.  
Could you all please cross your paws for me.   Mom and dad are very worried.   I'm only 8 years old!  We'll keep you updated. 

Love ya lots♥
Mitch

get a second and third opinion we say the university vets are always the most up to date - do you have any university vets near you?

Reilly-Denny Cowspotdogs said...

We did a lot of looking online - sounds like masticatory myositis (MM) - an autoimmune disease affecting the muscles of mastication in dogs. There are a lot of posts about it if you do a search on "dogs head sunken in on one side"
