Second Opinion at Tufts Saves Shayla’s Life

Friday, October 24th, 2014

They say big things come in small packages. Well, you can say the same for big diseases. Granulomatous meningoencephalomyelitis or GME is an inflammatory disease of the central nervous system, which effects many small breed dogs and one which very few people know anything about. When Veronica was asked to tell her story about Shayla, she jumped at the chance as this became a perfect opportunity to raise awareness of this little known and often fatal disease. Pet parents should always be vigilant for any unusual signs of illness in their pets. In cases of GME, Veronica Morrison would encourage you to be aware of signs or symptoms, such as stumbling, circling, torticollis (head turning) or an uneven gait. And Veronica is thrilled to report that with Tufts’ expert clinical services, Shayla was diagnosed early enough and her story has a happy ending.
