canine vestibular syndrome. Cricket had a bout of it before she came to us, but for a couple of reasons, I didn't think that was what it was. Fast forward past my phone calls and we were soon on our way to the vet. Cricket's regular vet is out of town, but my other vet was available. Dr. D feels strongly that it is vestibular syndrome. Cricket had gotten sick a few times by then and she was given IV fluids, and an injection for nausea.
Back at home I've put Cricket on her favorite bed and she is resting comfortably. Cricket is not a gal that likes to be handled, but thankfully she has let me pick her up and move her as needed. But despite my holding her, the vet visit was stressful for her nonetheless. She is understandably exhausted from the day. I'm hoping there will be improvement over the weekend and Cricket will be at least able to stand on her own by its end.
