My otherwise healthy, active, female Dalmatian (12 years) suddenly has lost her balance and has a head tilt. This began quite suddenly Monday evening while I was away.After returning home Tuesday evening I brought her to her vet Tues. AM. They ruled out Lymes and I am waiting for blood test results.She is home with me but it seems pitiful to be watching and doing nothing. I have given her Benadryl today. She is asleep and I am unsure if the antihistamine has helped at all.What is the usual treatment. Antibiotics? And how can we be sure that she hasn't had a stroke.Since Mon. she has not improved, but also she is not worse.
Thank you for your advice.
