Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?

No wounds. She hasnt moved right from the get go. She was shaking her head alot at 1-2 weeks. Now that the is walking she goes to the left. She falls over alot. Her litter mates are fine

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

No name.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?

Wodering if she has a neuro disorder. We gad to open her eyes due to eye infection at 2weeks. All is good now after ABT done. We almost lost her at 1 week old from not eating. Dont know if it could be ear, eye, or neuro.

HI this is DRB and I would be happy to help you with this.....so my first approach with this would be to treat this as if you have an ear infection since that will be the easiest thing to treat. I would ask your vet for some clavamox for your puppy and try this orally for 10-14 days and see if this helps. If not, then I would start ruling out metabolic issues first such as liver shunts and then consider neuro. A thorough exam and some bloodwork would need to be done to try and get a good idea of what is going on but I would try the clavamox first. This is the very easiest and cheapest first approach. I hope that helps but let me know if you need any additional help of if you have additional questions as I check my computer nightly. Sincerely, DRB
