When he went back, he got more antibiotics and that seemed to help a bit.

Good luck with your golden! hopefully antibiotics help her as well!

Thanks. It’s been about a week. Head tilt is pretty good. Balance generally good. She almost took my arm off two evenings ago to run towards rabbits. Labs and rabbits lol. She’s still iffy on the kibble. I slipped it in the other day and she ate it. Then I did it again and she wouldn’t touch it. However, I bought “packaged” cheese instead of $6 a pound deli cheese and she won’t eat anything with the packaged cheese. It’s been a mixture of eggs, bread, meat protein and cheese. Did some chicken and rice and now she snubs her nose at that. I’ve been giving her freeze dried raw mix ins and she takes those. I’ve decided I’ll probably have the first dog to go back to the vet next week for vestibular syndrome who will have gained 3 pounds. We are also dealing with the double ear infections and a cyst that burst and got infected, so I’m learning what it’s like to have a senior dog! Lol. Aka busy. Leaving her w/ my dad for three nights because I’m taking my golden to a specialty show this week.
