I have an 11yr old female. She has a cancerous tumors growing in her pelvic area. It's too risky to have removed and she's on meds. It's so large now that she bleeds from her pouch sometimes. She also had a problem with her tear duct clogging and we've had to have it drained several times because her cheek would swell up. As a result, her eye is a little damaged but she can still see out of it. However shes going blind in the other eye.

The last few days she started bobbing her head and moving it in a circular motion. Her eyes seemed to be shifting side to side. At one point she just fell over. I'm wondering if it's Veritgo or Parkinsons.

Our vet says theres nothing more she can do. Our glider doesn't seem to be in any pain. She still eats and drinks, but not like she use to.

I'm looking to see if anyone has any experience with the head bobbing and circular motion, I'm not sure why she's doing it.

ive lost a couple of gliders to cancer mammary cancer I think the bobbing is not getting enough air maybe your vet can give you something to make her feel more comfortable like a painkiller just like drs do for people if her nose is purple then u know for sure its that she is not getting enough air and she is having trouble breathing that's what mine had

I am sorry your going through this.

Head bobbing and the circular motion is neurological afflictions.

I would take an uneducated guess and say she may have had a stroke. With her advanced age and advanced cancer, she is just getting to the end of her life.

Your little one is slowly slipping away from life.
