Our elderly dog had this and completely recovered in 5 days. Vet called it Old Dog Vestibular Disease. It is hard to watch! He walked like he was drunk and his eyes darted back and forth... symptoms very similar to my husband's Meniere's Disease. I hope your Abby recovers quickly!If its what the vet said it is, the symptoms should abruptly stop as quickly as they started. Keeping my fingers crossed.
Thats exactly what she called it!Our elderly dog had this and completely recovered in 5 days. Vet called it Old Dog Vestibular Disease. It is hard to watch!

Yes, he completely recovered head tilt and all. He did have a little relapse about a year later but it was short lived too.Thats exactly what she called it!
And the eyes are so hard to watch. Reminds me of a time i was on a boat in the keys, i was climbing up to the second deck and we hit a wake. I was paralyzed for about 5 minutes trying to get my bearings. The world was still, but my vision kept going up and down. It was a solid 5 minutes and so nauseating. Poor Abby must be having this non stop.
Did your dogs head tilt recover too? She said it may or may not. Its almost cute, like when they tilt their head while listening to you, but i dont want her like that permanently.
awwwww wonderful news shes doing better. one day @ a time.Vet said shes not ruling out a stroke, but gave her meds for vertigo. Said its more common in older dogs than stroke is. She said that as soon as she saw abby she was 99% sure of it and it should clear up in a few days. If not then she will revisit stroke.
we just got home. She got a shot of the vertigo meds at the office and i have pills to give after. She already seems a little better... walking around like a drunk dog. She keeps walking in circles to the right. But at least she is walking, yesterday she wasnt.
And she got a pedicure while she was there lol. The office fell in love with her
