Q. Dog has been scratching a lot. Recently started having trouble balancing and moving. Seems painful when touched. Seems spacey. Has bad teeth also.
DR. ANDREA M. BRODIE, DVM
A. Your dog needs to be seen by a veterinarian who will probably want to do blood tests and radiographs. He could have a problem with his central nervous system, or have a serious infection that needs treatment (prescription antibiotics, etc.). The teeth need to be examined also as they can be the culprit causing a serious infection also. Please take your dog to the vet ASAP.
