Q. My dog is losing weight but still eats a lot. Also his balance is off
JESSICA L DESROSIERS
A. Loss of balance and weight or loss of muscle tone (which can look like weight loss) may indicate a neurologic or muscular issue is going on. You may also see other symptoms such as dizziness, drooling or even vomiting if your dog is very disoriented. As these problems can be serious, it is best to schedule an exam with your local vet as soon as possible to check for causes of neuro, nerve or muscular issues which could be causing the signs you are seeing. Until then, you may want to limit his activity to prevent accidental injury from loss of balance.
