It's a 12 yr...

It's a 12 yr old dachshund that's continually going in circles. She just started this 45 minutes ago. Earlier this wk she had a reaction to the immunizations given. The vet then gave her a shot of Benadryl, a steroid and fluid under the skin. She had a reaction to that and got totally out of it for several days. Yesterday and today she seemed pretty much normal again...until this constant turning started!

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dachshund's name?

Callie.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Callie?

She's been on Proin for 6 months or so.

You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply. Please be patient. This may take a few minutes.

I'm sorry to hear of this with Callie. Such circling is specifically indicative of both vestibular (balance) disorders and disorders affecting her forebrain (cerebrum and thalamus). If she appears disoriented, confused, wall-hugging, becoming trapped in corners, and/or doesn't respond to you at this time, a forebrain lesion is most likely. It's worrisome that she was vaccinated recently because a more severe delayed hypersensitivity reaction to vaccines can cause brain swelling - a meningoencephalitis. It would be prudent to have Callie examined by a vet at your earliest convenience if only became her aimless wandering will exhaust her. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
