Please keep our sweet little Piper in your thoughts tonight. She has been sleeping a lot and hardly eating. Tonight she was shaky and didn't want to play, so we took her to the emergency vet. Her symptoms of lethargy, fever, shaking, decreased appetite, neck and jaw sensitivity all point to Steroid Responsive Meningitis (SRM), also know as Beagle Pain Syndrome.

She is receiving IV fluids and pain meds tonight and will undergo blood tests, a spinal tap, and possibly an MRI tomorrow to confirm the diagnosis. We are praying that she is diagnosed early and is responsive to the subsequent steroid treatment so that she can come home to us soon. We love her so much!
