My 3year old chihuahua started to wobble a little bit on Saturday. It is almost like she is drunk, stumble once in a while and walking a little sideways. No other symptoms, eating and drinking regularly.
Took her to the vet and they examined her but did not find anything. They took blood and when it came back they said it did not show anything unusual.
She is still very wobbly and still no diagnoses, what should I do next?
While it is very unusual to occur in younger dogs, this sounds like a vestibular syndrome case. In these cases the patient develops inflammation in the inner ear (not due to an infection) and their sense of balance is affected. One of the signs that can be missed is that they will have a "resting nystagmus". This is where the dogs eyes twitched left and right when they are sitting still. I would spend a few minutes online looking for videos of this condition to compare but either way have your vet (or another vet) re-examine your dog.
