Expert:  Dr. B. replied 4 months ago.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

How long has he been showing signs?

Any head tilting, circling, or pressing his head into the wall?

Are his gums pink or white/pale? Moist or sticky?

Has he been eating and drinking normally?

Any change or head trauma?

Could he have eaten anything harmful (ie plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
He's swt now thanks. Was better next day. Think he may have eaten some spring onion bulbs that day when digging in the gardens.
Expert:  Dr. B. replied 4 months ago.

Lovely, I am glad to hear that he is well and hopefully he will avoid those onions (they can be quite dangerous for dogs)

Since we weren't able to aid you when you posted, I will send your question back to customer service for you.

All the best,

Dr. B.
