Hello my fur friends... It's been a long time since I posted on the board, but am always lerking. My problem child Simba has been relatively healthy the past few months and we have been enjoying the break. However, last night I noticed that when he tries to walk or jump his hind leg/legs give out and he falls to the side. Almost like he is losing his balance. His spirits are good, he doesn't seem uncomfortable, is eating and drinking, and bathroom normally, etc... I have a vet appt. first thing in the morning, but was just wondering if anybody has experienced this. I'm very worried, as I can't imagine this is a minor issue. He did suffer from chronic ear infections a few months back and had to have part of his middle ear removed. I was wondering if it could be an equilibrium problem, but the surgery he had was 5 months ago. Is it possible for symptoms to show up all these months later? It's very strange that he doesn't seem to be bothered by it and is still walking and jumping. Any input anybody could give would be greatly appreciated, I'm just very worried about my boy.
