The Disease and My Snuggle Puggle

Eduardo's Mommy Here:

I've been crying a lot lately, every time I see my sweet snuggle puggle(which is every time I look down) I break down and sob. When I hold him like a baby and stroke his face I cry and don't even realize it. He tries so hard to kiss the tears away but it only makes me cry harder. You see, we thought Eduardo had TMJ and that we would be treating him with an anti inflammatory for the rest of his life for the pain. Well long story short my husband & I decided to take Eduardo to a highly recommended vet for a second opinion because Eduardo was still in unbearable pain most days.

Yesterday, Eduardo was diagnosed with Eosinophilic Myositis. Eduardo's immune system is attacking his Masticatory Muscles causing them to be inflamed. See the Masticatory Muscles are made up of 2M muscles fibers, no other muscles have these unique molecular structure. When a dog gets Eosinophilic Myositis the immune system targets their "chewing muscles" for some unknown reason. This makes the muscles weak and in my personal opinion completely useless.
Eduardo can only open his mouth about the size of puppy kibble, when he yawns (something I gave him his first treatment of steroids yesterday and because yesterday his muscles were inflamed(which causing swelling) I wasn't prepared to see just how bad his Eosinophilic Myositis really was.
I want to show you some pictures, kinda like before & after:
His temples were always more sunk in than most dogs, but we thought that was normal.
Today I took some pictures:
See in the before picture his face was inflamed & swollen, so when we started the steroid treatment the swelling went down. Making his face look a little "hollow".
The vet says eventually he will not be able to open his mouth. Then we will place him on a liquid diet. I'm not crying because of that, I'll cross that bridge when I get there. I'm crying because my love is hurting. No matter how much he tries to keep it from me I see it in his little puggle eyes. Every time he eats I hear him gasping for air because he mostly swallows his food, instead of chewing, because of the pain. I cry because I couldn't prevent this!
But I swear on everything I will make it better. I know I haven't been blogging much but the blog is going to take a backseat for a little bit. Please everyone just bear with us. Snuggle with your loves(persons and fursons!) as often as you can! And if you have a moment, could you send some goodvibes? Some sites I read said with treatment dogs can regain full movement back in their jaws. That's what we're praying for. Eduardo is already down to 20% working, the rest is damaged and we want so bad for this treatment to make this muscles healthy again!
We love y'all!

Ana and Eduardo,

It hurts my heart to know you are sad. I am thinking many good thoughts for you.

I have to eat canned food since I lost muscle when my heart had troubles and I have a boney head now too.

I know you will do everything for Eduardo and he knows you love him.

Daisy said...

I am so sorry to read this news. My brother Harley has eosinophilic granuloma complex that causes his body to have an allergic response and he gets blisters and ulcers around his mouth and granulomas down his legs. I don't know anything about Eduardo's diagnosis, but Harley's holistic vet started with steroids for the worst symptoms (first he had 5 Depo Medrol injections, then he went on oral prednisone). Then we worked on boosting his immune system which was sort of going haywire. We switched to the best food we could find (Nature's Variety raw medallions), and started using something called Transfer Factor to help his immune system. We also use a fatty acid supplement. Harley has been off the prednisone for over a month now.

I hope there is some treatment for Eduardo that can help him get over his condition. I am purring my very, very best for him.

Raising Addie said...

:(

We are very sorry to see that Eduardo is having such trouble. Our hearts are breaking for you. We hate to see any of our friends in pain.

We can totally sympathize with you. Our Lucie is also having some health issues that have us concerned. We are still in the waiting phase, not knowing completely what is going on yet. Blood tests come back tomorrow. I hate feeling helpless.

You are a wonderful dog mom and are taking such great care of Eduardo. Our pups deserve the best for all the love that they give us. But it hurts so bad to watch them go though something like this.

Stay strong! We know that Eduardo will get better. We have all of our paws crossed for him.

Please give him BIG big hugs from us!

Lots of Luv & Kisses
Addie, Lucie and Hailey

Patience-please said...

Dear Ana-
I'm so very sorry for your heartache, and for Eduardo's disease. To offer you encouragement, we had an appointment to euthanize our treasured Mama Pajama six years ago for an autoimmune disease. (Neutrophylic Vasculitis) She is now twelve and a half years old!

I pray that Eduardo is able to thrive the way Mama Pajama has.

And secondly, you have solved a long mystery for my bestest friend. Her old Basenji got this and no one was able to diagnose it. Copy died when she was 15, after a wonderful life, but Laurie never knew what had happened to the muscles of her head.

big heartfelt hugs-
Patience (the whippets' servant) who thinks Eduardo is a very fortunate dog to have you

Mr. Puggle said...

my heart goes out to you. your blog can be a great place to educate the rest us. eduardo can help owners find the symptoms early by reading your blog. please keep us updated.

Eduardo and Ana, my heart is breaking for you right now! Reading this, Mommy is crying as we type. I am so sorry this is happening to you, and I wish there was something we could do to make the pain go away! I will be keeping my paws crossed and sending pawsitive vibes your way!

keeping you in my thoughts,

Hugs and Licks, Bruschi and Christen

Bruschi said...

And another thought.....seeing the chewing of kibble is extremely painful for him, maybe the diet that I am on would be of great help. It is called The Honest Kitchen www.thehonestkitchen.com, and it is rehydrated food....so it is basically the consistency of oatmeal....he could swallow without any chewing needed!

Hugs and Licks, Bruschi

Oh Eduardo and Ana, this make us so sad. To think of you in pain - physical and emotional - makes our hearts feel like they are breaking. We are so sorry to read of your news, but we are equally hopeful that an accurate diagnosis may lead to both greater comfort, and, even better, relief from the disease. We'll keep you in our thoughts and prayers and hope that each few hours are better than the ones before. We're counting on the treatment being effective.

Oh Ana, I am crying for you today.

Please let me encourage you... NO one can take better care of Eduardo than you, and you will do ANYTHING it takes to bring him comfort. No matter what anyone tells you about his health, you are his #1 advocate. Keep researching. Keep asking questions. Keep loving him. If you have to hand-feed him his meals, even if they are liquid, this will all be ok. He is so lucky to have you!

We are all praying for his healing, and I KNOW it can happen! Keep believing!

It is so good that they have found out what exactly is the problem and can set a course of action. It is so AWFUL when our little friends are hurting. OC's eye is still a little swollen, but almost back to normal and not bothering her as much as it was, but I KNOW how you feel watching them and knowing they are hurting and you can't take the pain away quickly. I will be praying for you and for little Eduardo, and for the doctor to have wisdom in how to bring about the quickest recovery treatments. Linda

Our eyes are all leaky after reading this post. We didn't know Eduardo was sick. We're going to purr as loud and long as we can that you can reverse this and that Eduardo will be healthy and happy again soon.

Lindsay said...

Oh, Eduardo, The Girl and I are so sorry to read about your disease. We are sending you healing vibes and hope - we know your Mom and Dad love you beyond anything, and will search and search until they find a way to make you better. The Girl says that she is sending your Mom and Dad lots of love, and she is praying for you all. I am sending Brown Dog Vibes, which I hope will help. We have been absent from our fur-ends' bloggies for far too long - and it breaks our hearts to know that you are in pain. I think Mango's suggestion is a good one - baby food, or perhaps some canned doggy food, maybe even with some water in it to make it easier for you to eat. Please be strong, Eduardo and Mom and Dad, and know that there are hearts around the world pulling for you.

Wroos of hope,
Dannan and The Girl
