Hydrocephalus was created by Piccolo Pete
I wonder if anyone has come across a deerhound with hydrocephalus (water on the brain). Our Harris was diagnosed with this condition after an MRI scan. This was after his back legs became unstable last week. I know it's most prevalent in toy breeds and have read one or two articles about the condition in dogs. However, so far I haven't managed to find anything about this in deerhounds.

Anyone have any information ?

I'm sorry you have had no response to your Post. Indeed, I cannot help you either. You may wish to check out www.googlescholar.com - entering canine hydrocephalus for the search. Lots of articles there - some relevant, lots not!

I would be interested to know what happens with your dog. Please let us all know what happens - and hope all goes well.It IS treatable.

We have seen an improvement in the last few days and have seen the specialist vet today for a check-up. In the meantime I've set up a new web site just for Harris and his condition in the hope that someone who has experienced similar problems may add a comment or two, and also maybe to help anyone who is in the same position. It shows a summary of his condition, the background to his health issues and also provides a diary of events which I'm trying to publish every day or so. If you would like to see it you'll find it at :-

Bye for now.
