He is a 14 year old standard Poodle
who started to have violent head shaking after his grooming a week ago. For the first five days, it was only when he woke up in the morning - and it was accompanied by reckless running. We've seen this before in the last year but it usually resolves in a day or two. As of last night, he was up every hour doing a walk through of the bedroom with shaking. The reckless running is mostly gone. But when he's awake and standing, he has very little if none shaking. Vet was here Tuesday, ears
appear fine. We knew he could have a deeper infection, but seemed strange to everyone that during the daytime and while standing - he's just about fine.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: No foot wound that I see - why? With the ears shaking?
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the standard poodle?
Customer: History of very occaisonal petit mal seizures
maybe and one large seizure 3 months ago. Some arthritis
and back pain, weak back legs
. sensitive to blow drying in grooming heat as he's gotten older, entire touching / sensory stuff much more sensitive now. Hearing loss. Had entropian surgery 7 mos. ago
