Post Litchi not well. Woobly?

Just yesterday, she was fine, running like a mad girl as usual. Now I just found her layingon her side, looking dead with here eyes wide open. I tried to pick her up, help her walk but she constantly tip over. I'm afraid it's woobly, but it's so sudden. Last month at the vet she was perfectly fine and the vet complimented her for beeing fine at almost 7 years. Of course, I'm gonna take a vet apointment ASAP, serynge feed her in the meantime and take her wheel off. I'm uploading a video to show you.

I'm in shock and so sad. Only one girl with a neurologigal disease in the household is enough

Oh I am so sorry. I think with such sudden onset and age could possibly be stroke. I hope you can get her into the vet. You can tell she is loved so and she is beautiful. We are all here for you and are thinking of you. Keep us posted.

Lisa

Thanks Lisa, I didn't think about the possibility of a stroke. I'll let everyone knows what the vet says.

Thanks a lot.

I barely slept last night and I just rusher to her cage, thinking maybe he would be OK, but sadly no, she's just like yesterday. I'm already thinking about having to tell her goodbye.

It's too sudden for whs.

With end of life slowing down they become unable to walk too but it's even too sudden a progression for that, plus her other movements still seem strong.

I too would suspect possibly a stroke or an injury. The vet may put her on anti-inflammatory or steroids.

Poor little Litchi. She has done so well. I pray she will beat this. Hugs

If that's a stroke, can she come back to normal?

I'm so sorry that you both are going through this. I really hope that it's something she can recover from. I'll be thinking about you.
