A few weeks ago as I was running out of the house for work, I noticed my dog had a slight tilt to her head. I thought it was funny at the time (she was looking at me in almost a puzzled sort of way). But then as the days went by I noticed it was still sorta there.. so I mentioned it to a few of my family and they had actually spotted it as well.
So my mam and I brought her to the vet, who advised it could be a number of things.. vestibular disease (dog vertigo), stroke or worst case scenario.. brain tumour.
She's been on medication (to treat the possible vertigo) the last 10 days but doesn't seem to be improving...and the vet thinks it's most likely something going on in her brain. She's not in any pain, just with a permanent tilt which has gotten a lot worse, and her coordination hasn't been great - but we're gonna be keeping her on the medication and paying close attention to her over the next few weeks. I'd be devastated if we had to put her down...we've had her 11 years now. But we're all in agreement that we wouldn't let her suffer.
Her tilt is fairly bad..
