I could write for hours about my dog, and her transient ischemic attacks (TIA), or the dog equivalent of a TIA. I had a TIA in 2012, so I am familiar with a TIA.
I believe my dog had 3 or 4. the first time, I took her to a specialty clinic in Houston (https://www.gcvs.com/
) and did a complete Neurology workup on her. No permanent brain damage, and no tumors.
First attack was crazy, it was the middle of the night, and she got off the bed to go to outside (I have a dog door) and I was woken up to the sound of her going around in circles. Her left two legs were not working. I held her, and when she calmed down, I got some meat, and chewed up two baby aspirin and mixed it together, and miracle of miracles, she ate it without hesitation (my dog is a very picky eater). While I believe that my actions saved her life, the specialty vets were very concerned about the two baby aspirin that I gave her, they told me that aspirin was very bad for dogs. They told me never to do that again. My regular vet said that "no aspirin for dogs" is currently considered "best practice", but she commented about "just a few years ago", we gave dogs baby buffered or coated aspirin all the time.
Again, long story short, she is now on Clopidogrel, 8mg/day, and has not had any more TIA's. I have been on Clopidogrel also, (along with baby aspirin, and lots of fish oil) and have not had any more TIA's since 2012 either.
the Clodidogrel 8mg, I have to get from a special Vet compounding pharmacy here in Houston.
I hope Beau has no more issues!
