We have a 10 mo old chiweenie. She is pretty small. We recently have been letting our neighbor keep her over night occasionally as he is lonely. One week ago, he brought her home with some kind of injury he could not explain. She seemed dizzy, swaying her head and could not use her back legs
, dragging her back body as tried to get her to walk. I rushed her to the vet and they treated her for a sprained back and sent me home with a steroid. She is done with medicine and can walk now but is walking
side ways with her back body. Her right eye
also looks a little crooked. We are afraid he may have rolled on her in his sleep, possibly causing suffocation but he won't admit. Should I take her back to vet? Give her more recovery time or is there anything that can be done or should we just accept that we may have a brain
damaged dog that may never be able to run or walk normal again?
JA: IÂ’m sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name?
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about June?
Customer: She is eating but does look thinner.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
