We guys, after 3 weeks of waiting for blood test result to come in, I finally got my call from the vet today.

Batman does not have Cerebral Ataxia! This was the best news ever!

My vet thinks Batman may have been exposed to parvo in uterus and that made her a little uncoordinated and twitchy. The vet is checking to see if there are any other tests that could be run for any other disorder and if there are we'll have them done.

We're just super happy that she doesn't have something that's progressive. I can deal with her being "a little weird."

Yay! for good news. :biggrin:  So glad to hear it isn't progressive- who knows she might even 'catch up' a bit developmentally as time goes on. Neuroplasticity is very strong at such a young age, maybe you could look at doing things that make her more aware of where she is placing her feet and see if you can't help the process along a little? Simple things like walking over a line of sticks on the ground, walking her over different textured surfaces- nothing strenuous since she is a baby, perhaps get your vet to hook you up with a good canine physio who can show you some exercises?

She has gotten a lot more coordinated a far as walking and running goes. She zips all over the place. Goes up and down stairs and can even get on and off the couch! It's still really obvious when she eats and drinks though. I had a friend over and my friend saw Batman drinking some water. My friend said that the way Batman drank was "so cute."

We are so happy to get the results back. Batman makes everyone happy that she meets!

Well I've got a huge grin on my face. Not only because of the good news but also because I can see her bright inquisitive eyes just shining.
