Very restless, but not walking well. Back end shakey. Feet

Customer Question

very restless, but not walking well. Back end shakey.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: Feet look fine. She walks well for maybe then feet, then seems to get stuck and then walks okay again. Won't lie down for very long.
JA: The veterinarian will know what to do. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Aleska and she's 16.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the veterinarian should know about Aleska?
Customer: She's been creaky in the back end for a while, but not this bad. She was checked out by my vet in late June and she seemed fine, just old.
