Customer Question

We have 3 dogs and live on a farm. 2 of our 3 dogs gave suddenly came in acting almost drunk and unsteady on their feet especially in the hind area but generally weak all over. Any idea as to what maybe causing this? Could it be caused by fermented corn my husband threw out of one of our grain bins?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

Did the dogs have access to fermented corn?

Anything else like pesticides, snail bait, rat bait, heavy metals or antifreeze?

Are the dogs able to eat, drink, and pass urine?

Are their gums still pink? Any breathing changes?
