Hello! My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to help you with your dog today.
What kind of dog is Tilly?
Is her head tilted at all?
Does she sort of stumble?
Is she still eating?
If you hold her head still, do her eyes still flicker?
When she has these issues, does she seem dazed or confused?
Any other new behaviors?
Okay...great. Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.
Since the antibiotics are helping, I strongly suspect that she may have had an inner ear infection which was impacting the nerves in her head/face.
As long as she continues to improve, I'd just keep an eye on her. When the inner ear is inflammed through trauma or infection, it can cause the nerves in the face to be affected as well, so it's not unusual to see these kinds of symptoms.
Hopefully the anitbiotics will continue to do their job and she'll be feeling better in just a couple days.
I hope this helps.
