When my sister got home from work yesterday he year and a half old rhodesian ridgeback was very lethargic. He wouldnt move much. She took him straight to the vet and they think he might have meningitis.
From what i know meningitis is an infection of the spinal fluid (i had it myself as a child) and they are going to a specialist today. They said they will probably have to do a spinal tap.
The vet took blood work and did xrays of his spine. The blood looked fine except for high white blood cell count and the xray didnt show anything out of place.
Does anyone have any experience with meningitis? What are treatments?
Thanks. I am worried about the big lug.
