Customer Question
My dog has had...

My dog has had some health issues and my vet has put her on steroids. I came home from work today and she is pacing and keeps shaking her head and drooling. Its like she is trying to get something out of her mouth. I have checked her mouth and teeth and can not see or feel anything.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know what to do with the drooling. What is your dog's name and age?

Nala and she is 4

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

She just went through some health problems that caused her not to be able to walk. All blood work came back as a healthy dog. The vet treated her with antibotucs and steroids and she has been fine until today

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Nala, please? Can you clarify these health problems resulting in her inability to walk? Her pacing, head shaking and drooling suggest nausea which can arise with the use of steroids but perhaps they may be a symptom of those health problems that have returned.

Thank you for the additional information. I appreciate your taking the time to let me know. I'll think good thoughts for Nala's prompt recovery.
