Customer Question
hello my 14 year...
hello my 14 year old healthy is walking with a tilted head and stumbling. she has a thyroid condition, so just 2 days ago I took her to the vet to get blood drawn. they monitor this for the dosage of meds. she had an exam, and besides being a bit arthritic, she was deemed in good health. however yesterday and today she is walking with a tilted head and stumbling. I looked inside her ears and the canal seems to be swollen shut. she is a very large dog, a husky mix weighing about 85 lbs. is there anything I can put in her ears to maybe relieve this?
