Q. Hello, I am curious if you have seen vestibular disease appear without the following symptoms: eye movement, lack of appetite and vomiting.

Answered By

A. yes, vestibular disease does commonly resolve with time, often over 7-14days. Some dogs will be left with mild defecits in balance afterwards but many recover to normal. It is important to rule out any risk of heart disease which can also cause similar signs from clots travelling to the brain/brain stem and will require additional preventive medication
