Guest RowdySoup Posted July 18, 2008 Share Posted July 18, 2008 Hi all. I'm Xan's husband. Haven't written before, but I do look around regularly. Xan is out of town and incomunicato for a few days, and I have a concern for dear Happy, our senior girl. When we got her, she had teeth problems and had several rmoved, which seemed to help out with her appetite. She had also some old injuries that caused a slightly detectable limp. Lately, the last few days, it has been a real challenge to get her to eat lot. She sort of picks through her food. Usually if we try to feed her several times, she gets most of it. She had a really hard time when we first got her with our bamboo floors. She had some pretty panicky first few days falling and slipping, but seemed to be getting the idea down of how to walk on them ok. Which leads to my concern. This morning after I fed her, or rather tried to get her to eat all her food, she went into a brief panicky slipping on the floor and when she settled for amoment, it looked to me like she was very uncertain of her balance, swaying a bit to and fro. I gently held her till she calmed down and then led her out to the living room and the safety of rugs and dog beds. She snoozed all morning and seems ok this afternoon, but that losing her balnce thing worries me. No other real obviouss behaviors or symptoms. Is she just experiencing senior moments? inner ear problems? Any ideas? Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
