Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Welcome! Thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian and I will be assisting you today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.
1- What breed is she?
2- Did she get into anything?
3- Any vomiting, diarrhea or coughing?
4- How long since the last time she ate?
5- Can you take a look at her gums and see if they are pink or pale?
Please give me a few minutes to type your answer. Thank you.
Friend, in a 10 week old puppy with acute onset of balance issues can be caused by many different medical conditions. Common causes are: Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), toxicity, infections, ingestion of a foreign body, etc. to name a few causes.
Unfortunately we are very limited as to what you can do at home. In this case, I would strongly recommend having her checked today by nearest veterinarian for a hands on examination. In the meantime give her 1-2 teaspoon of honey, pancake or karo syrup directly into her mouth in case this is related to hypoglycemia. Follow up with ER veterinarian.
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.
