Vestibular syndrome :-(

My poor Basset Hound Daisy has been diagnosed with vestibular syndrome, otherwise known as “old dog syndrome.” She is walking around like a drunk sailor these days, and falls over when she tries to shake. Since she was a rescue hound, I’m not exactly sure how old she is, but we guess that she is at least 11, and so well within the range for this disease. It is certainly a design flaw that our canine companions have such a short life span compared to humans.
