There are 3 different clinical types of this condition including, cerebellar, sensory, and vestibular. Each type of ataxia will be manifested by impaired coordination when walking or standing. Changes in the dogs neck and head movement are characteristic of cerebellar and vestibular ataxia. The possibility that your dog has ataxia is evidenced in a variety of ways. Your dogs limbs may become weak. This symptom can be seen in all or just one or two limbs. Sometimes it is seen only on one side of the body or just in the hind legs. Other signs include tilting the head back and forth and abnormal eye movements.
Symptoms of Lactose Intolerance include bloating, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. If your dog suffers from any of these symptoms after consuming dairy products, you should eradicate dairy products from his diet completely. If he suffers no ill-effects, then he is probably tolerant of lactose and there is therefore no inherent danger in feeding dairy products. However, they should always be fed sparingly as large amounts may cause symptoms of lactose-intolerance even where the dog is tolerant. Dairy products, specifically cheese, also have a very high fat content. Yoghurt is often recommended when taking antibiotics because antibiotics indiscriminately kill gut bacteria which temporarily disrupts the digestive functions. Feeding \"live\" Yoghurt that contains bacteria is thought to help replace the beneficial bacteria in the gut.
