Customer Question
My chihuahua tried to jump...
My chihuahua tried to jump on the bed this morning. He was running and misjudged himself and collided with the bed frame. He is now stumbling, trying to keep himself upright, as though he was dizzy. He doesn’t appear to be in any pain, he didn’t yelp when I examined him to see if I could feel any broken or dislocated bones. I don’t know if something else is wrong.

He is alert and wags his tail but he is still having trouble walking. It’s as though his front legs were asleep.
