Customer Question

My name is ***** *****, My dog has just presented with sudden inability to walk - seems like one or both hind legs are not working.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: My husband was asleep and heard a thump - he woke up and the dog was unable to walk. She also seems to have possibly lost control of her bladder and bowels.

In the interim, we have taken our dog to an emergency clinic where the vet diagnosed a vestibular problem - possibly old dog vestibular syndrome or possibly due to a tumor. Dog has improved and is now resting comfortably at home. We will monitor and work with our regular vet moving forward.

Fantastic, I am happy to learn she was seen by ER veterinarian. Let's hope for a speedy recovery.
