Hi, I can help you with your question today.

Expert:  brisadog replied 1 year ago.

Aside from the wobbly walking, is she behaving normally? Is she confused, withdrawn, lethargic?

Expert:  brisadog replied 1 year ago.

OK, the wobbly walk is consistent with a neurologic problem. This could be a primary condition (seizures, for example), or it could be secondary to another condition such as liver disease or a portosystemic shunt.

Expert:  brisadog replied 1 year ago.

I highly recommend having her evaluated by your local vet. I would start with a physical exam and blood testing. Depending on these results, we may continue with a liver function specific test (pre and post prandial bile acids) or imaging with abdominal ultrasound.

At this point, I can't explain the cloudy eye. This can be due to trauma to the cornea causing corneal edema, changes in the lens, such as a cataract, or cloudy material such as cellular debris filling the anterior chamber of the eye. An eye exam will be necessary to differentiate these.
