Optimal treatment for your pet requires a combination of home and professional veterinary care. Follow-up can be critical, especially if your pet does not rapidly improve.

  • Administer all prescribed medication and diet as directed. Alert your veterinarian if you are experiencing problems treating your pet.

  • Most patients, especially when HGE is recognized and treated aggressively, have an excellent prognosis and a full recovery is expected. Patients whose signs are not recognized early, or whose treatment is not terribly aggressive, may have complications, some of which may be life threatening. Acute death has been seen with this syndrome.

  • Reoccurrence is seen in approximately 10 percent of the cases.
