What is the best course of action to help a diabetic senior pug dog that has a head tilt?

My older dog has some serious medical issues and I do not know what to do to help him.

Considering the fact that brain problems can cause changes in balance and a head tilt, it would be better that a trained vet sees your senior pug dog with head tilt so he can diagnose whether it is a brain problem or something less sinister.

Is it painful or painless? A diabetic senior pug doll with a painless head tilt could be having a vision problem and hence tilting his head to see straight. A neck abscess or a ear infection can cause a painful tilt, but will respond to a course of antibiotics.

The very first thing anyone with a pet should is to take him to the vet and have him checked out. If you can't afford a pet look for free or discount services. He might have an ear infection, which is causing his head to tilt or it might be a serious problem.

I second that! With so many medical problems, only a trained vet can diagnose the cause for this head tilt in your diabetic senior pug dog.  add a comment
