Customer Question
She exhibits all the...

She exhibits all the symptoms of vertigo and we are a bit concerned. We are taking her to the vet tomorrow. She's a 15 year old bishon with almost no vision.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with the dog?

She exhibits all the symptoms of vertigo and we are a bit concerned. We are taking her to the vet tomorrow. She's a 15 year old bishon with almost no vision.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Where does the dog seem to hurt?

She doesn't seem to hurt but she is favoring her right ear

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. No obvious pain. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?

None other than the symptoms mentioned. However she is taking neomycin as drops in her eye and I hear that could be a source of her trouble
