Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, this is Dr. KV. I am here to help with Noah. Is he alert? Do you know if he ate something toxic or did he hurt himself?
Ok, rotten food can cause severe upset stomach issues, even when it is not actually toxic. Dogs can get disoriented and almost apppear "drunk" if they have eaten rotten food. It sounds like Noah is not feeling well. Has he vomited?
Ok, thank you for the additional information. It would be a good idea to take him to your vet if he continues to shake and not move...this could be a sign that the garbage is making him feel very bad. We also cannot be certain he did not eat something that could be causing an intestinal obstruction. Your vet will also be able to give him medications to settle his stomach and treat the diarrhea.
Please feel free to reach out if I can offer any further assistance.
