Customer Question
Our great dane just...

Our great dane just suddenly had her eyes roll back into her head, bi-lateral and she seemed disoriented. She was laying down.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name and age?

Simone, age 10, Great Dane

Veterinarian's Assistant: How old is Simone?

Age 10

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Simone?

No other health issues, not over weight, very active. This is first time this has happened. It was sudden and we kept talking to her and encouraging her to get up.

I'm sorry to hear about your issue with Simone, how is she doing right now? Any changes with her breathing?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No changes in her breathing. At the moment of the problem there was no change in her breathing, I was sitting on our couch and Simone was right in front of me laying on her dog bed with her head up looking at me.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Beth, Dog Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Ok good to know - is she able to walk or is she seeming disoriented? How long do you think the episode lasted?
