Thank you for reaching out to us. First of all, vocalization in dogs can imply both attention and illness. A differential diagnosis is required in this case to rule out all possible medical conditions before concluding her whining to be wanting attention. However, since she is displaying some symptoms at the same time, it is likely to be a medical condition. Have you tried feeding her a different brand of diet or making the original diet more enticing by adding toppers or flavors?

Regarding wobbling, you should check her ears first as ear infection often causes dogs to shake their head and wobble. Other common differentials include dental issues, canine distemper virus, brain problems, and idiopathy. In the clinic, your vet is likely to first carry out bloodwork, urinalysis, and maybe even an X-ray to evaluate her health condition.

Please make an appointment with a vet.

If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to come back to us!

Thank you.
