About The Topic

Sudden onset of head tilt, usually accompanied by nystagmus and ataxia implies a vestibular disease which needs to be investigated to determine whether it is peripheral or central in origin. We will present videos that help us with this evaluation and then discuss what diseases are responsible for each location. We will present an overview of the most important diseases and outline how to treat for the treatable when owners cant afford expensive and or invasive investigations.
