When you begin looking for an animal shelter to work with, you will find that most of these groups do rely on their hard working volunteers and support from the local community to operate. You will also find a wide variety of animals available through these shelters. Many animal shelters handle all types of animals and you will find kittens, puppies, and even older pets available for adoption.
Trauma, toxins or viruses can also be the cause of cerebellar ataxia in dogs. That part of the brain that controls balance - the cerebellum - is affected by this type of ataxia. In the case of vestibular ataxia it affects the inner ear and the alignment of a dogs body and head. Not standing straight and holding the head at an angle are typical signs. The spinal cord and thus the position of the dogs legs are affected by sensory ataxia. Some signs of this type are the dog crossing its legs when walking or they may walk on the back of their paws.
Other indications are when your pet has difficulty in walking in a controlled and steady manner. When a dog has ataxia their hearing may be impaired. Dogs suffering from this condition may become lethargic and behave in unusual ways. The word ataxia has Greek origins and means \"without order\"; in the case of pets it refers to the coordination of movement. Dogs that have cerebellar ataxia usually have a drunken gait or they will lift their paws way off the ground when walking. \"Goose stepping\" is the name given to this kind of action. Stumbling or dizziness can result from any sort of quick movement.
