Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am sorry for the delay in response. Friend, if Leo is not showing any other symptoms of motor dysfunction like: Difficulty walking, eating, jumping, etc. It is normal for him to not move his head but use his eyes when he is focusing on something. The eyes have inner muscles that surround the entire globe allowing for upward, lower and lateral visualization of things without moving the head, this is completely normal. My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
