Default Really worried!

We're scared. Peanut is in her first heat. (And last). She's exhibiting some distressing neurological symptoms. She wobbles and has extreme weakness in her front legs. She stopped wagging her tail weeks ago and was holding it strangely. (long before the heat began.) She's been to the vet and had lots of bloodwork. We're waiting for some of the results. Vet is puzzled, too. Any ideas, guesses?? Probably back to the vet again this week.

That IS upsetting. I have never heard of neurological symptoms during/before a heat period. I wonder if she has had x-rays of her head???

I would be surprised if these symptoms are linked to her season.
My worry would be liver issues or a head/back injury.

I'm sorry, I'm not able to help at all, I just wanted to say I'm so sorry that you and poor Peanut are going through this! Me and the "kids" have all our fingers and paws crossed that she gets better soon!!!

Thanks! She's on 'pen rest' today. Some of her blood tests are still out. Vet wondered about anemia. I'm leaning toward back problem.

We visited the chiropractor yesterday and it has really helped. So far it's looking good.
