dizzy sharpei - what could be wrong?
(El Paso, TX)
My sharpei gets dizzy, looks confused and disorientated.
After I feed him he is back to normal again. What is wrong?
You need to take your dog (or pup) to a veterinarian for a full check up to find out what's going on. I'm not a vet I'm afraid so it's impossible for me to say what is causing these symptoms.
One possibility is hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). This happens more often in small or tiny breeds, but it's possible that it can affect any puppy or dog.
As feeding him seems to help (which raises his blood sugar), I think it could be to blame. However, there will be other possibilities and your vet is in the best position to make an accurate diagnosis and to recommend treatment (if any) or give you suggestions as to how to prevent this from happening.
It's not normal so please do take your Sharpei to a veterinarian as soon as you can. Best of luck, hope he's doing much better soon.
