The only way to tell for sure if your pet has any type of ataxia is to have them thoroughly examined by your vet. The reason for the ataxia will be determined by a wide range of tests, the cost of which should be covered by a good pet insurance policy. Finding out why these signs are being displayed is imperative. There are other possible reasons for the symptoms such as a reaction to medication or an ear infection.
Thats enough bad news. Heres the good news, YOU CAN HELP PREVENT DENTAL DISEASE IN YOUR PET! Preventative dental care is very effective. Some things are beyond your control, such as genetics, your pets natural chemistry, breed and chewing habits. You can start with your veterinarian. During an basic exam your veterinarian can visualize the teeth and help you determine what will be necessary for your pets dental health. Your veterinarian can show you how to brush your pets teeth. Brushing your pets teeth is fast and fairly easy, plus it is the most effective step toward dental health. Unfortunately only 6% of pet owners will CONSISTENTLY brush their pets teeth. You need to brush your pets teeth at least 3 times a week to be effective. The next best thing is flushing the mouth/teeth with oral rinses to kill bacteria in the mouth. Often these products contain zinc, which helps combat plaque and tarter, and odor eliminators to improve breath.
