Clumsiness

Any awkwardness or unawareness of movements or size in your dog or cat, is also known as clumsiness. This is a symptom that does not always have to be a cause of concern. However, when your cat or dog is showing consistent, and unusual clumsiness, it can be a sign that your pet suffers from blindness. It is therefore advised to consult a veterinarian in case of unusual clumsiness.
