Veterinária:
The neurological examination evidenced compulsive walking, "postura com base ampla nos membros torácicos", head tilting to the right, positional strabismus and nistagmus.
Isso significa que o cão só consegue ficar de pé com as patas dianteiras bem abertas.

broad-based posture
Explanation:
... My assumption was that he had emphysema. He sat in the chair with a broad-based posture, like he might fall off.

This is a psychiatric site, but the context fits snuggly.

RHUD:

Posture

the position of the limbs or the carriage of the body as a whole: poor posture; a sitting posture.

Oi, Henrique
Obrigada. Ficou "broad-based stance", como aparece em vários sites sobre doenças neurológicas, tanto em humanos quanto em animais. By the way, o cão em questão tinha Leishmaniose com sintomas neurológicos.
