Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? How long has this been going on for? Are you noticing any strange movement with the eyes?
Okay thanks for the additional information. Do you know if Pebbles ever had this issue in the past? What type of dog is Pebbles? With what you are describing it sounds like she may have a condition called Vestibular disease. This is where something is affecting her balance usually associated with the brain. Common issues for this could include a severe ear infection but it can also occur in older dogs for unknown reasons. Usually it can pass on its own or sometimes if it is really bad then medication may be required to help with the balance.
You said that she has had issues with her ears in the past. Do you mean she has had ear infections? If she has an ear infection then you may want to see if the signs improves it helps when the ears are treated. Otherwise you can ask your veterinarian about trying a medication called Meclizine if she is really bad
Do you currently have medications for the ears? If you do I would start treating them to see if that helps.
