Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hi there, I am Dr. Kane, and I will do my best to assist you with your pet today. Please give me a moment to type up a response to your concerns. In the meantime- please take a moment to relay any other pertinent information. Sound good?
Are you available to text with me?
OK. It sounds like her symptoms may be due to a condition called idiopathic vestibular syndrome, or "old dog vestibular syndrome"- does this sound right?
What I mean is...is this what your veterinarian was thinking Alice may have?
Hi- just checking in to see if you are still here...
OK good- thought you got lost there! I am going to type up a response, but before I do I just want to clarify a few more things. Apart from the deafness and blindness, and current balance issues, do you believe she has a good quality of life? Does she continue to do the things she enjoys?
Or does she seem to have lost most of her zest for life?
Sorry, I cannot take phone calls here. I can opt out so you can get a phone call with another veterinary expert if you like- however there may be a delay with this until someone is available.
Would you like me to turn the question over for you to wait for a phone call, or shall we continue here?
OK then, I will opt out so that someone else can take over that phone call for you. Take care!
