I took her to the vet right after the symptoms. Fortunately, they were still open. The vet thought she might had ingested a drug outside or something like that.
I dunno. I am scared as I only read online about vestibular disorder/disease and stroke. I read one thread on here about a thyroid issue causing head swaying. I am so scared as all those are serious.
I feel so bad and I was crying all night. She is staying overnight and I don't have a diagnosis yet. I am so worried. I have health issues of my own and I was trying to care for her health as best I can. :-(
It is good your dog is staying at the vet over night. Someone there can look after the animal. You are such a nice person to take of your health problems and your dogs at the same time.
Looks like you are doing all the right things. I am glad the vet was still open at that time.
Hopefully you have some good news tomorrow.
