Vet Suggestion Dog Wobbly Gait

Hello Shelly,

I’m afraid the list of possible causes for your dog’s “wobbly” gait is extremely long and does include some potentially serious conditions. The only way to get to the bottom of what is going on and to determine what type of treatment stands the best chance at improving the situation is to schedule an appointment with your veterinarian.

He or she should be able to give you a lot of good information after just taking a complete history and performing a physical and neurological exam.

Best of luck,

Jennifer Coates, DVM
