Welcome! Thanks for asking your question. My name is***** will do my best to help you today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- Did she get into anything?

2- What breed is she?

3- Can you stand her up and while she is standing can you look at her eyes to see if they are going side to side or up and down?

4- Can you look inside of her ears for evidence of an infection like redness, bad odor, discharge, etc.?
