I was wondering if anyone has ever experienced this with their Havanese.
About a year ago, my 9 year old Havanese experienced some fleeting stumbling episodes. They are so fast, I thought I was imagining it. Sometimes he'll start to bop up and down and will fall over with his hind legs, jump up and he's fine. Sometimes he seems to tremble and will start to fall over, then correct himself. So basically his symptoms are shaking, stumbling and falling over. Sometimes he goes for months with nothing, then he'll have an episode, then go months without one.
He is always conscious and 90% of the time it's when he's standing too long.
He's had every test going - even saw a neurologist. He has known heart problems (valve issues) and luxating patellas diagnosed at one years old. The Vet can't tell if it's his heart or his knees causing the problem.
So he's on 6 pills a day for his heart and pain meds for his knees.
It breaks my heart seeing him like this.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
