BHRR's Canvas was dropped off by Sean at the Vets for 7:30 AM on Thursday November 8th, 2012 for the x-rays under sedation plus bw.

Everything crossed for him.

I still am so thankful I took those videos….that really helped the Vets to understand what he was like……and even though, those videos were not half as bad as he was right after he woke up, it gives a good idea of what he was acting like.

I had my eye on him for most of the night and he was perfectly normal and the same this this AM.

With this 'episode', at this time, we think it best that dear BHRR's Canvas stay home on Saturday with the rest of the Boers for quiet and calmness and we will announce the other BHRR doggie to attend the Pet Valu event on 457 Hazeldean Road shortly.

HUGE thanks for all the encouraging plus supportive words for him AND us to date!

For those asking what he needs or what they can do for him, at this time, we have everything all covered. BUT THANKS! The biggest thing are Vet bills yet, that is the same all over for any r/q Rescue and we thank all of you for really rooting for him again! 🙂

UPDATE: November 8th, 2012:

X-rays have not shown any noticeable lesions or tumours etc. that may have indicated why this happened to him. They are being sent off to Dr. Crews for review.

His bw was overall unremarkable. Some inflammation values that could be explained by him having been vaccinated recently prior to come to BHRR and not much else.

The Vet's recommendation is to see what Dr. Crews has to say yet, not just rush out to a neurologist etc. at this time.

BHRR's Canvas is acting completely normal! Yet, we still opted to not bring him out to the BHRR community education plus public awareness event that we attended on November 10th at Pet Valu(457 Hazeldean Road).

Kanata Animal Hospital (613) 836-2848 and they will take Visa, M/C and AMEX over the phone under the account of 'Birch Haven Rescue' for 'Canvas'. They will take Debit or Cash in person at 440 Hazeldean Road in Kanata, Ontario
