Hello /an/, I come here because I'm desperate. My pug had what I believe was a stroke... twice with a few minutes in between, it happened while we were asleep. All vet clinics are closed right now and the wait is killing me.
Its been 2 hours since and he seems to have blurry vision after it happened but other than that he seems ok.
I'm scared shitless it happens again and the wait for the vet to open is killing me. What can I do? Any advice? Please I'm desperate...

In humans once you see stroke symptoms time is brain tissue. There's special medication (TPA) that can help reduce the impact, but it must be given in a small window of time (a few hours from the onset of symptoms), and you must be a candidate (ex. not on blood thinners or super high BP).

I have no idea what's available for animals, but my guess is not much.
I would take it to the vet asap. Provide comfort and safety measures. Keep it from moving around too much, and try to encourage it to drink lots of water to increase its bp. In the hospital environment for humans we usually want to keep the bp high to promote perfussion to the brain. Fluids is away to raise bp, but I doubt the dog will drink much. Make sure also to keep the dog in a quiet comfortable environment; decrease stimulation.

Be aware of any weakness, swallowing difficulties, vision issues, cognitive functioning, etc.

His only deficit may just be his eye sight. It's possible he could have had a TIA (if that exists in dogs). His symptoms may improve.

Just please take him to the vet when they open

I was doing research and it seems to have indeed been a TIA. He drank a lot of water too so that's comforting in a way. I'm heading to the bet in a few minutes, they open at 8am and its 7am where I am.
He is resting now and I'm vigilant in case anything happens.

Whoever had the idea of making vet clinics closed on the weekends? Like retail, there should be people working on the weekends, because time doesn't stop on the weekends: everyone still has needs.

And in this case it's the animals who have needs. I've seen so many threads (been lurking here for years) where shit happens on the weekend and the owner of the pet is basically fucked and it really hurts to see.

Fuck off.
Sell your phone laptop and tv before begging strangers to save your pathetic excuse of a dog.

Don't listen to this dickhead anon, He is just baiting because he is a sad special needs spider owner/catfag/birdfucker/exoticunt. Hope your dog gets fine!
>>
>>2293811
No I'm genuinely pissed that an owner would rather sit it out begging strangers for vet money than going out and selling their belongings.

I own dogs, real dogs, not deformed handbag acessories.
