Customer Question

My 18 month Pomeranian's head started wobbling all of a sudden. Not shaking fast but slower like he is having trouble holding his head in a normal position. He also seems confused and slightly lethargic. I'm worried because due to many rains we have a lot of mushrooms that cropped up in the yard recently.

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. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

How long has he been doing this?

Would you say it is more of a head bob?

Could Niblet have fallen or sustained a head trauma?

Do you think he has eaten a mushroom (any chewed in the yard)? Or anything else?
