As many of you know, I've been treating my buck for Polio. He is not responding well. He is getting worse. I am doing the correct treatment for it and I caught it early. Most people have reported a turn-around in a day or less with Polio. It will have been 6 days tomorrow. He is now getting weak in his legs. It started with the hind legs...walking stiffly. Now his front is doing the same thing. I read on another forum about Meningeal Worm and I started researching it. Guess what.....we have lots of deer and also some standing water where he was housed for several months. It was a very wet season and Meningeal worm almost always presents itself in late summer or fall, after the animal has grazed in that location for a couple of months. The cycle of the worm takes that long. Also, we do have plenty of snails, given the wet conditions. What do you all think? Ever seen this disease? I am calling the vet about it in the morning. I would love for this to be the answer as the current treatment isn't doing the trick. He is getting worse. I'm giving such high doses of Thiamine, it is ridiculous....1000-1200 mg 2-3 times/day. It is in the Fort. B. Complex but that should matter right? That is the dosage of Thiamine he is getting. The bottle says 100mg/ml. I've been giving 10 ml and last dose was 12 ml. Do you think it could be the Meningeal worm? It presents itself in the same manner as Polio and many other brain diseases plus we have the perfect conditions to create such a problem. Figures. I didn't even know about this Meningeal worm. I'll let you know what the vet says. Goodnight!
