My 13 year old smaller dog (breed unknown) suddenly became disoriented last night and was having a lot of trouble walking
. This lasted through the evening and continues today, though to a lesser degree than last night. He also has begun panting at times though he never panted before even in very hot weather. He has been active right up to last night, then suddenly this stuff. He's bobbing his head and looking back and forth like he's searching for something, but his vision seems intact. As I said, it seems to have diminished somewhat at the moment today, Sunday. Any idea what's going on and what I should do about it, if anything?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: No, no wounds, and he didn't fall either.
JA: The Veterinarian will ask you more detailed questions to find out what is causing this. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Dog's name is Cooper. Have not taken him to a veterinarian. This is Sunday. It does seem diminished.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Cooper?
Customer: No. He's been eating and drinking very well and his stools are brown and hard.
