Hi there. If the blue cheese was moldy with mycotoxins, it could be causing these clinical signs. You could have your vet send a sample to Michigan or California vet diagnostic labs and have them check for the presence of tremorgenic mycotoxins. ​As Charley's symptoms seem fairly mild, I would hope that they would beself-limiting, but if you are very concerned, it is never wrong to have your pet evaluated by an emergency veterinarian to err on the side of caution. Hope this helps, and please let me know if you have any other questions- Dr. C
