Customer Question

hi, thank you for your help. I'm worried about my Himalayan. He's quite old, about 15 now. We left for the weekend and when we got back he was acting quite strange. He's kind of slow moving and falls over a little bit. His legs seem off. He also had a lot of brown discharge around his eyes, nose and sides of his mouth. (he usually has a little brown goop under his eyes but never around mouth or nose). Please let us know what you think! Thank you!

Expert:  Dr. B. replied 1 year ago.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

Is it all his legs or just the hind ones?

Any coughing, sneezing, or breathing changes?

Any redness or haze/clouding of the squinted eye?

Any known falls, slips, or injuries reported by his sitter while you were away? Any chance he got into something he should not have?
