Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Hello, you are through to Dr Linda, a UK based vet.
I'm sorry to hear Baby has not been well.
Lethargy and a loss of appetite can have many causes.
Does she have any other symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhoea, weight loss, an increased thirst or bad breath?
When did she last see a vet?
What do you mean by 'waddling'? She is off balance when she walks?
A loss of balance is concerning and may well indicate an ear infection. Other considerations would include a brain lesion (such as an infection or tumour), liver disease or toxin ingestion.
Given that she has lost some weight and has had episodes of being off balance, I would advise a vet visit ASAP.
They will examine her and may run some tests such as a blood test and neurological exam.
Treatment will depend on what is going on e.g. an ear infection will require prescription ear drops, while liver disease can be managed with diet and supplements.
Not at all.
Please feel free to keep me updated and to ask any further questions you may have.
