      I wasn’t sure where to put this, so it ended up here. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Did you know that there’s a canine type of GBS? It’s called Coonhound Paralysis. I happened to be channel surfing late last night and came acrossed a show called E-Vets which had a bit on a Chow that had lost movement in her legs and had NO reflexes.

      So, I did a little search on the internet and found this webpage:

      which compared the CHP to GBS.

      Thought y’all would find it interesting!

      BTW- after a week in veterinary intensive care and 3 more weeks at home recovery, the dog is fine. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I have wondered if dogs and cats also got gbs. Thanks for posting this information.

      Yes, I knew about doggie GBS. I think we had discussed it on our old forums before a hacker destroyed them. Very interesting isn’t it.

      I have heard of it but have never actually seen anything about it. I will have to see if I can find that show it was on, thanks for the post.


      PS-Is that show on Animal Planet?

      That’s fascinating and sad, I’d never heard of people getting GBS prior to my attack let alone dogs. Thanks for the info ๐Ÿ™‚

      The first time I showed up at my vets using a walking stick, the vet asked what was wrong and I told him I CIDP, which was the chronic form of GBS. He immediately went into a discussion of Coonhound Paralysis.

      The amazing thing to me was that he knew what GBS was!
