Your strain of pit bull - short legged and full bodied - has been officially recognized by the United Kennel Club as a separate breed from the American Pit Bull Terrier called the American Bully. Bully or not, APBT or American Staffordshire Terrier/AST or not, these dogs are all variations on a theme that all go back to the same ancestors. Because they share the same family/DNA they also share the same genetic diseases :-( One particular affliction seen in the AST is Cerebellar Ataxia. But because these breeds share the same roots this genetic condtion will also be found in APBT and American Bullys. This genetic disease is characterized by wobbly gait and loss of balance that appears between age 3 and 5. There is a genetic test your vet can do to rule this condition in or out- for info on the test have your vet look here:
This is a very serious genetic condition and if your dog has this disease you should contact your breeder and let them know so they can avoid producing more afflicted puppies.
Now, if your dog does not have this disease then it certainly could be yeast on the brain/candida - I have seen weird symptoms in critters due to systemic yeast and saw wobbly gait and loss of balance. Read up on EC's candida page:
Ted's Borax Protocol for dogs is as follows:
Posted by Ted (Bangkok, Thailand) on 12/12/2014
"The borax dose is the same regardless of the weight of dogs. In the end small dogs drink less than large dogs. The only difference is the sex of dogs which the female dog requires half the dosages male dogs.
So a female dog is always 1/8 teaspoon per liter dose. And male dogs is 1/4 teaspoon per liter water. Weight is irrelevant.
Borax dosage for 1 week. Then 1/2 dosage in week 2. Stop for 1 week. Resume.
Borax dosage for 4 days, then no borax/water for 3 to 4 days. Continue on/off schedule until ailment clears.
Some reduce the dosage depending on weight of dog to prevent side effects but just know that beneficial effects will also take more time to see results when you reduce the dose.
This is most common dosages, just use common sense. Yes borax can be use for many unexplained conditions of dogs and human for simple reason that most unexplained conditions that cannot be cured with bacteria in majority of cases is fungus or parasites which borax does well but also is essential nutrient for the bones and hormones in mammals."
If you have ruled out an inner ear infection, consider having your girl screened for Cerebellar Ataxia, and in the mean time consider Ted's Borax protocol.
Good luck and please report back!
