14 yr mini started doing backwards circles while jumping around X a month now?

She (LaCee) is completely blind, Always has been a calm girl but a month ago she started this strange circles and jumping at the same time/ She will end up with her butt in the water dish....or the kibble dish....and bounces off the walls. To stop the circles I pick her up and hold her close and tight....and I can feel her trembling! Usually only takes about 3 minutes and she will calm....but could start up again at any minute? .....I am guessing it is neurological....anyone else have this happen? (My last mini lived to the ripe age of 18....with a heart mummer her entire life !)

Poor girl. We are no experts, but it could be neurological, a mini stroke or dehydration as her pee is bright yellow.
Whichever it is, or it may be something very different, she needs checking out by a vet.
All the best.. you sound like a devoted owner. she is already a good age for a Mini. 18is very exceptional. When the time comes, make the right decision for your Mini, no matter how hard that is for you to let go.. our thoughts are with you.
