That does sound like vestibular disease. So glad she's feeling better!

Hi LAM, sorry to hear Banshee is having health issues, but so glad she is doing better.

I have just come through an episode of vestibular disease with my boy and hopefully that is what it is for Banshee and it is just a one off episode.

Just FYI, so you can compare, with Levi he did have issues eating for a few days after, he couldn't seem to chew, coordinate his mouth. I suspect that came from his severe dizziness/nausea that vestibular causes and I hand fed him for a few days. He also had bad diarrhea but that could have been the vet anti nausea med. Anything that involved him lowering his head was not good for him (he didnt even want to lay down on his side to sleep and had to be kinda propped up).

I think the worse thing though was the lack of control over his movement, he could barely take 4 steps without falling over and he would collapse or face plant and keeping him safe from the others was a challenge. His front legs he was moving out sideways and plonking down (if you can imagine like how we would be in the pitch black without being able to see, how we would move) while his rear end he had absolutely no strength and no idea where the hell his rear legs were.

It took a week to get over the absolute worst of it...then 6-8 weeks to get back to what he was (but he does have other health issues).

Below is a link which has some useful info on vestibular.

I hope Banshee is doing better again today...she is a beautiful girl and lovely to see the pictures of her in this thread.

Exactly! Her nose was stuck pretty close to sons GF's plate the whole time. She had successfully begged from DH, me and my son. Son was done eating and running in and out of the house getting camping stuff while nagging his GF (above) to hurry up. GF was the only one left with food so she had all 4 dogs around her.

Running thru the house last night boxing at my heels....RUNNING! Whoa Boo, slow down there old girl! Haven't seen that in a very long time. The only difference so far is the curcumin so her body must have been full of inflammation and soreness.

I saw her jump up on the door to look outside yesterday too. My son looked at me funny and says "she does that" ummm...no babe, she does not, not anymore. He hasn't been around much the last 6 months. It took a bit of effort for her, she was stiff and I think she misjudged the distance from her back feet to the door but her balance was good. So her curcumin will stay at 2x day. Will discuss with Scott tonight whether to add in the IP6 and mushrooms. We have them for her to so might as well unless she's having any adverse reaction.
