Q) My Dog Has a Head Tilt (Vestibular Symptoms) │ Twin Trees Vet Talk (FREE VET ADVICE PODCAST)


On today's episode of Twin Trees Vet Talk, we welcome our very special guest, Dr. Michele James. Dr. James is a Veterinary Neurology Specialist at the MSPCA-Angell animal hospital in Boston, Massachusetts.

In this video we discuss what to do if your dog is experiencing vestibular symptoms, such as a head tilt, dizziness/ vertigo, and loss of balance. There is a long list of many different diseases and medical problems that can cause these symptoms- from problems with the inner ear to problems of the brain (like brain tumours and strokes).

3 BEST PIECES OF ADVICE FROM THE EMERGENCY VET THAT COULD SAVE YOUR PET'S LIFE
1) DON'T WAIT TOO LONG TO GET HELP! If you wait too long, it could be too late. This is especially true for concerns such as laboured breathing, pale gums and weakness. You know your pet best, so if you are worried or concerned, "when in doubt, check it out!"

2) PREVENT THE PREVENTABLE. Learn as much as possible about dangers that face your pet, such as household poisons, seemingly harmless objects (like toys, clothing, garbage and rocks), other animals, and vehicles. Pets are like toddlers and they need a responsible adult/babysitter to protect them from danger. Puppies and kittens need to start their vaccines at ~8 WEEKS (and they need boosters too!) to protect them from deadly diseases.

3) BE PREPARED FOR THE WORST CASE SCENARIO. Have a plan in place, know your nearest emergency clinic, have the ASPCA phone number on speed dial. Know basic first aid training and CPR. But MOST IMPORTANTLY, BE FINANCIALLY PREPARED. The cost of medical treatment in an emergency, and the owners' ability to pay for it, is probably the most important factor that determines whether a pet will receive the medical care it needs. The best way to protect yourself is to have good medical insurance for your pet. Do your research.
