Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

How long has she had these signs? How long do the episodes last?

Does she tend to circle in one direction?

Any vomiting or nausea?

Are her gums pink or white/pale? Moist or sticky?

Could she have eaten anything harmful (ie plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?
