Vestibular attacks are why I asked about the eyes. They tend to get nystagmus (flickering eyes) as their balance is confused. If it was central rather than peripheral (brain not ears) you might not easily see a side.

Gracie, my little girl who had a vestibular attack didn't fall over, she was very unsteady on her back legs, Tommy who started to fall over because of her back legs had kidney failure. Cyril used to fall over when he first came because he nearly starved to death.

There are so many things than can be wrong so stop worrying about what it could be, enjoy what you have now and build memories up, they won't be wasted even if it is something easily solved, you will still have them. hug.gif

He is a lot better today, seems much brighter and has eaten his dinner ( special chicken of course) for the first time without me hand feeding him lol.gif I am still leaning towards the vestibular attack but we won't know unless he has another one, which I hope he doesn't! Thank you for asking wub.gif

Thanks for the update, Jamie had a seizure 2 years ago and never had one since so hopefully it will be a one off.

Sadly Herbie had another episode last Friday, still don't know if he had a seizure or just vestibular dizziness. Back to the vets and she has referred him to a specialist to see if needs mri scan as no other way of telling sad.gif it's at Northdowns practice which is a fair way from here, just waiting for insurance to agree then can make an appointment. They need to check if caused by lesion on the brain as it's very difficult to diagnose without. He is improving again slowly like before, keep telling myself that wouldn't happen if a brain tumour! If the specialist diagnoses with almost certainty that's what it is, I don't want to put him through stress of mri, will just monitor until I think the time is right ( is it ever for the humans crying.gif crying.gif ) just don't want him to suffer unnecessarily but I'm in pieces. I've never been without a dog for many years as I usually have 2, but my gut reaction at the moment is I can't go through the heart break again with another so will stay dog free...

Anyway, I have to pull myself together and just enjoy my time with him, problem is we go on holiday the end of August abroad so I can't really cancel it, my neighbour usually has him but my dog walker may have him at her home as I don't want to distress my neighbour as she is elderly ( although she insists she'll be fine as she loves him dearly)

Sorry, was only meant to be a short update and turned into a saga!!

So sorry it happened again hug.gif Hope the specialist can get you some answers, and they're good answers. My bridge boy Boots, had a cluster of seizures so I took him straight to the vet, where he had another in front of the vet, so he could tell what it was.

My dog has vestibular like epsodes when he was 8. He didn't have the eye flickering but had the head tilt and walked in circles.

My vet agreed he was too young for vestibular disease and diagnosed a stroke - not common in dogs but does occur.

He thought it was either a clot or a tumour on the brain.

He recovered but had another episode two weeks later. Again he recovered but had another after another month and another after another 6 weeks.

That was the last one but one his eyes had sunk slightly and stayed like that.

I declined an MRI as it would not have made any difference. It would only confirm what my vet was sure of and no treatment would have been available.anyway.

He lived happily until he was a month short of his 13th birthday.

As he got into old age he did display signs of 'dementia' at times- staring at the wall, 'being in his own world' at times but that was all.

However he did latterly develop diabetes insipidus, which n due to a tumour on the pituitary gland- which took us back to a brain tumour.
