My 7 years old female duschund got SARD(Sudden Aquired Retinal Degeneration) 10 months ago. Since then she has been very inactive.

These last few days, she keep right-circling around& sniffing like crazy all the time and very active.(mostly during the day)

I gave her food this morning, and seems to be she couldn't smell it anymore.

Any thought??
Thanks

It sounds like a trip to the vet is in order given that her behaviour is so unusual. You might want to make a note of all of her symptoms and the circumstances before and after she exhibits her odd behaviours so that you can give your Vet all the information they need to assess whether a MRI will be needed.

I would take her to the vet asap. Sounds like she may have had a stroke.
