Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
Is Faye on any medication at this time?Can you share a video of what she is doing?
Perfect. I'll keep an eye out.
There is an attachment function on the page that should allow you to post pictures and video. You can also use websites like tinypic.com and youtube.com to upload pictures and video respectively. Once this is done, a set of links will appear. You can then post the link back and I can access them.
My concern with this is that Faye is experiencing some discomfort and is doing all she can to avoid laying due to this discomfort. At 14, she no doubt likely is dealing with some arthritis. I can give you some suggestions to get her through the holiday but I would highly recommend that she see your vet and have an exam. She does not look like she is experiencing any vestibular symptoms based on this video. I would be interested to see how your vet feels about her condition after palpating her spine and hips, x-rays might also be suggested. A trial of canine-safe NSAIDs like rimadyl and pain medication like tramadol may be recommended, as well.In a pinch, we can use aspirin to try to help with discomfort.
