Apparently these babys came in with a head tilt, and they gave them a full dose of antibiotics. They were sure it was an inner ear infection. The abby is pretty good - just a little tilt. The teddy is really wobbly - head tilt walks like she drank a bottle of wine. Both are very sweet - starting to trust me - YAY!!!!!! When nervous they do circles.
Both have great appetites - are eating Cavy Performance, drinking water, and did great with a salad last night. Their fur is shiny, clear bright eyes. A scratch here and there.
Any ideas on what this could be? Both of my gp vets are good - but I´m sure this one will be totally new for them. Anything specific to look for to help us figure this out?
I´d like to give them an idea before I bring the girls in - maybe they can call Dr Quesenbury before I do.
Any help appreciated.
Thanks - Donna ?
I notice this page also mentions intoxication:
This could be caused by ingestion of lead, found in paints or imported pottery, or ingestion of a toxic plant such as the woolly pod milkweed.

I was thinking that the meds weren´t strong enough. I know when my husband had an inner ear infection - he was bouncing off the walls too.
I´m just hoping that it´s nothing majore of liufe threatening. These girls are just two cuties!
Thanks - Donna
I had a cat with a super bad crooked head. He had impacted ear mites which caused brain damage. After they neutered him, they flushed and flushed his ears - and it was amazing - he was deaf when I took him home - after that he could hear some. Poor Willie, he only lived 5 years. I had to put him to sleep after he tried to walk into a burning fireplace. He had bone cancer, and was not able to hold any body heat. It was sad - he was a very very special kitty. I could write a book about him. He ran into a door, had about 5 surgeries, raised two litters of kittens, one puppy. I will always miss him........
