Q. I'm really worried for my dog, he is suffering of loss of balance and loss of appetite. This has been going on for almost 2 months now...

A. Loss of balance can indicate a serious problem in dogs. Ear infections, neurologic symptoms, vestibular disease and more can all cause problems. Vestibular disease is the most common, and can also cause loss of appetite as the balance issue can make your dog feel sick and nauseated. Dogs with vestibular disease can also often circle in one direction or have a head tilt to one side. Since loss of balance is such a serious issue, it is best to have your dog examined by a vet in your area.
