Advice / experience needed! Pug suddenly having episodes and dragging paws :/
Hi, just looking for advice / seeing if anyone else's pug has similar symptoms and what the treatment was.
So I reluctantly had to put my 2 pugs in kennels for 8 days. They were vet checked and healthy when they went in, but I had a number of problems since collecting them (1 in particular).
The one I'm most concerned about has had 2 episodes since we collected him in which his head tilts and appears stuck, his eyes look the opposite way and also appear stuck and he is unbalanced (back leg slips backwards). These symptoms only happen during an episode, which lasts a few minutes and then he seems okay.
For the last 2 days he has started to drag his left front paw, and today his right paw too. They occasionally knuckle.
He also came home with kennel cough (despite being vaccinated), and damaged ligaments in his back leg that need to be operated on.
I believe he has fallen or jump from an excessive height which may have caused these problems but I'm not sure.
I've taken him to the vet; he has had a heart scan with a specialist and that came back fine. He is going back to the vets tomorrow to spend the day so they can monitor for a long period. I'm just concerned about time because we collected him on the 2nd April and the vets still don't seem sure. Neurological problems has been stated as a possibility but still unsure.
He seems happy in himself and still wants to play and eat.
Has anyone had experience with knuckling or random episodes on head tilting ect?
Thank you x
