Hello and thank you for your question. It appears that the Expert you were hoping to speak with is not currently available. I have stepped in to assist you in their absence so that you have a prompt reply to your question. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?1) When did these symptoms begin? Any signs yesterday or before? 2) Any medication that your dog is on? 3) What breed is she? 4) Are you seeing any nausea? 5) When she tries to walk, is she unable or wobbly? 6) Any head tilt, jerky movement of her eyes, etc?
