Old Dog's Syndrome
So Sasha had an episode of vestibular disease back in July 2017. It was awful - I thought she had had a stroke - she threw up and was just a mess, rapid eye movement... As I'm calling the vet I'm googling to see if there is something I should be doing. Old Dogs Syndrome came up which kind of put my mind at ease... We had gotten her to the vet, treated her for the nausea and within a few days she was mostly normal but did end up with a head tilt. Said head tilt would go away when she was chasing squirrels or if we had her out and about at a restaurant or something... This past March she seemed to have another episode. The eye movement, the stumbling. Not as severe as the first time but it seemed as though the head tilt went in the opposite direction. Vet checked her out, everything else seemed fine and again within a few days she was pretty much back to normal... But interesting thing - the head tilt is COMPLETELY gone!!!
Googling, its not common to have more than one episode (though the vet didn't think so) - but who knows. I just found it really odd that she no longer has a head tilt!
