Myesthenia Gravis - NOT!

AP here:
We met with Dr. McDonnell at Veterinary Neurology of the Chesapeake and discussed the mystery that is Tonka. As he seems to get really tired with exercise we ran a test for Myasthenia Gravis. Of course the test came back negative, all his tests are negative.We really are running out of tests that would make sense for any of his symptoms.

Tonka's therapist Chris has joked that we should nick-name the boy "everything's beautiful" since all his diagnostics come back as normal and beautiful.

Last year when Tonka started having nosebleeds he was put on prednisone and he did not react well to it at all. I swore that he would have to be dying to ever go back on it. Well this is one of those never say never moments as we have put him on a very low dose to see if there is any improvement.The wonderful thing about Dr. McDonnell is he listens when I say that Tonka is sensitive to medication and this really is a very, very low dose.
Fingers crossed!
