I know its a lot easier said then done, but try to stay calm until you know everything. It is much easier to think and plan with a clear mind. Sending prayers your way

Heya, llombardo,Thanks for the "pup" talk, hee hee...Sorry, that was cheesy...
Anyways, guys, Mono seems to be completely back to his old self with the exception of the paralysis on his left side...We are most likely gonna see the Neuro for our peace of mind...It seems that once his ear infection cleared up the symptoms went away, and knock on wood hes been fine since...Its weird, but we are very happy to see our sweet boy again...
Thank you again to everyone for your words, stories and good thoughts, I will keep you posted on what the Neuro says, fingers, toes and paws crossed! Much love to you guys...I don't know what I'd do without this forum to help, its good to know there are so many of us GSD lovers out there! =)

Much love back to you! So glad to hear that Mono is feeling better. I so hope that it's just one of those weird idiopathic things, maybe an imbalance due to his ear infection.

Hey guys, sorry about the delay update...Mono is still his old self, his face is still a little weird, but amazingly it "tightened up" on his droopy side...Maybe hes just an old man with a cute as a button face...In any case, thank you all for your advice and help, I tell ya, life with a GSD makes it all worth living... =)

Great news! It could be some kind of nerve inflammation that clears up on its own over time. My old guy had vestibular syndrome that looked horrible for two weeks, but he recovered nicely.

is there any chance that this may be a reaction to a vaccination the dog had .

Thanks, Rebel, I do believe it is/was ear/nerve/etc related...Granted his face has "personality," now, but thats AOK with us! =) Our only thing now is on that side of his face his nose tends to dry up...Ive got to clean it daily and apply vasaline...I dont mind and hes very good about holding still...I was wondering though, if anyone knew about this stuff called "Snout Soother?" I was thinking about ordering it since its all natural (vet said vasaline is ok, but I wanna try something else) but its pricey...
As for a vaccine, carmspack, I dont think so, we havent had him vaccinated around the time it all started, but I can understand why that would be a concern...
