Stumbling

Hi all. Hoping you can help ease my mind with something.

About a week ago, my boy Ogie began doing this weird stumbling thing. When he does this, it looks similar to when someone is dozing off and they start leaning one way. I notice it when he's standing up, he kind of leans to one side as if he was dozing off. It only lasts maybe a second, but it's noticeable.

Last night when he got up on the bed, he stumbled a bit causing him to fall off. It's concerning because it's new and unusual behavior.

Has anyone experienced something similar or may know what's going on? All other activities are normal such as playing tug, eating, etc. although he has been lagging a bit on walks.

Thanks all!

Take him to the vet. It's more then likely an inner ear issue. Probably just wax build up, but could be something else. In either case, the vet is the best to be digging in the sensitive area of the inner ear.
Ecko spent a couple of days stumbling around like a drunk, when I took him in and they flushed his ears. He was fine afterwards.

Thanks Ecko for the reply. That sounds like the right prognosis, as he has been favoring one of his ears lately. He'll allow me to get in there pretty deep with a Q-tip, but there are so many canals and I haven't been able to find the root cause.

I'll get him to the vet and have them cleaned. Thanks again!

Did you take him to the vet? my small dog was having something similar (2 or 3 years ago) and it was ehrlichia!

I took him to the vet this past Saturday. He really doesn't like being there to the point I need to put a muzzle on him. Anyways, they gave him his annuals and cleaned the ear with a solution. They gave me a bottle of it also (protex?? or something) and suggested a daily cleaning with a few drops. So he'll be getting his medicine daily to see if that helps.

I'm not familiar with ehrlichia. Is that a serious condition?

it can kill your dog, it is an infection transmitted by the bite of the tick. it attacks the nervous system, sometimes it starts affecting the legs then something else until the dog dies

Thanks again all for the advice and help. His ears are getting better but what's more concerning to me now is his lack of energy. He isn't really that interested in going on walks anymore and when we do, he lags behind often. Definitely not like him.

Would the ear issue have any kind of impact on his energy level? Thanks again!

I would said yes, his ear condition could affecting. Also is he eating and drinking water normally? if not, I would take him to the vet, maybe the ear condition is consequence of something else

How old is he now? If he's still young and his ears are clearing up, then if his energy doesn't go back to normal in the next day or two I would take him in for bloodwork.

Hey all, he's doing alright so far. He has some good days & bad just like all of us.

I explained what's going on to my vet and she gave me a little bottle of joint relief pills (Galliprant). After about a day or two, he was back to his old self for a while! He was actively walking next to me on walks and just seemed to be more involved. Unfortunately that was short lived. Yesterday and today he's been mostly moping around and not really engaging. But we do play tug with the rope often which he really likes.

I can't help but feel my mood is affecting him. Without going into too much detail, I haven't been happy with my life for a long time. It's a mixture of work and personal issues, but I feel as if my depressed and disengaged mood is affecting him too. Maybe he's depressed too because he's trying to cheer me up and sometimes I don't respond to him how I should or how he hoped me to. Man, if that's the case I'll really feel bad.

I try to get him to get excited about walks, using a positive relaxed attitude before and during. I just don't know anymore but I hate seeing him like this.

Thanks again all.
