I am sorry to hear you are worried about Shorty. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

I am sorry that you did not get help from an expert until now. I just came online and saw your question. How is he now; do you still need help with him?

I see he has a head tilt. If you look at his eyes, do they twitch back and forth in the sockets? Are the pupils the same size in both eyes?

I hope he is doing better. Let me know if I can be of help.

Thanks for answering, he has a brother and mom also, they stay in a cage kennel at night in my kitchen, they love being together, last night shorty didnt want to be with them in the kennel until it became very late then he walked over and i let him in, prior he just wanted to be held, his eyes look ok, this morning he woke up as usual i let them out , the have a Dog Cave in the garage where the food bowl is, that area is cut off by a 3 foot tall chain linked fence with an access door to the garage with the side entrance . Shorty is little and wedged his way between the post and the wall to come to me and didn't eat his customary treat, he took it out of habit but no appitite

Sorry I was not available when you got back to me. Let me know if I can help. How is he today?

I Have him under vet care, unfortunately for this program, it is not time sensitive. I am displeased and will never again use this to help my animals.Often a person has to resort to using the internet it is for the purposes of getting a fast solution. My lil guy could have died if I had waited. To risky.
