|So we got Trooper home. We've been watching him for a couple days now and started doing some research because we were told he was a special needs dog, but that the vet didn't really know what was wrong with him. It was described as what appeared to be something wrong with his back legs. But the longer we watch him, the more we think it might be something else.
My mother and I did a little bit of research, and we are going to ask our vet about vertigo. There are forms of it which can apparently be permanent in dogs for various reasons, and Trooper has pretty much all of the signs of it. It would even explain why his legs seem to fail him sometimes. From what we read, it's kinda rare for it to be so severe, which might explain why the first vet didn't think of it, but we're going to mention it to our vet and see if it's a possibility, because there are treatments for it.
Has anyone ever heard of this before?
