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.
When you choose a pet from an animal shelter, be prepared to go through an interview and application process. The organization wants to know these pets will be well cared for the long term. You will probably be asked about other pets you may have, the age of your children, the size of your yard. This is to help match the pet with the right owner. Adoption fees vary by each shelter, but you can expect to pay $100-$250 for a rescued animal. These groups do not make a profit. These fees cover the cost of the animal while it was in the care of the animal shelter. This adoption fee usually covers vaccinations, medical exams, spaying, and neutering.
