Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hi this is Dr. Hill. Loss of balance can be due to a few different diseases. Scooby may have a vestibular disease, called Geriatric Vestibular Syndrome. The cause is unknown, but it causes abnormal eye movements, head tilts, loss of balance and is some dogs an inability to stand or walk. A severe ear infection would also cause similar signs. A stroke is another possibility. And my last concern, would be toxicity. Ingestion of antifreeze can cause uncoordinated gait and dribbling urine. I recommend that you get him to your local veterinarian as soon as possible, so that they can help determine the cause and how best to treat. Please continue to ask questions. Take care.
