How long have you had him? Has he always done this? Walking in circles like that can be an early sign of an ear infection.

Took Winston to the vets and he has got some eardrops the vet said it looks like a ear infection so he is on the eardrops for a week then back to the vets for a check up

Fingers crossed it should have gone

Thanks for the concern

Winston sends his love
