QUESTION
I have a 15 y.o. gelding who suddenly has developed a very swollen upper lip, poss. dehydration symptoms, listless, staggering walk. He was given WNV shot over 3 weeks ago. He does have an appetite and I finally got him to drink water. He does this odd twitching/jerking, moving his head around. Any ideas?


ANSWER

There are many different diseases that can give similar neurological symptoms. Contact your veterinarian and have him/her do a thorough physical exam to determine a proper diagnosis.
