Our expert says:
Meningitis as you know is inflammation of the of tissues surrounding the brain and spinal cord. The trigger can be anything from bacteria, viruses to fungus etc. Cortisone will assist in the treatment of this condition with the addition of other pharmaceuticals to treat the causative agent(s). Because the clinician uses cortisone does not he/she diagnosed meningitis. The are other conditions such as vestibular disease that can present with a similar clinical picture. Please ask you vet to clarify what they think may have cased the development of the clinical sign's you have observed.
I do hope your Staffie makes a full recovery.
