Taking my 12 y.o. pug to neurologist. She developed

Customer Question

Taking my 12 y.o. pug to neurologist. She developed vestibular disease in March & just has not recovered from it. Back legs not moving well & she has a head tilt. Meds from regular vet have done nothing. Last year she developed fecal incontinence which is still an ongoing thing.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the pug. What is the pug's name and age?
Customer: Mia; 12
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Mia?
Customer: She is mostly blind. Still eats (although we feed her by hand since the vestibular episode) & drinks well & goes to the bathroom.
