Customer Question

my dog is a 13 year old Min Pin and yesterday started shaking and panting heavily. she falls over for no apparent reason, as if she cant keep her balance. I have watched her and the falling seems to happen when she has a sudden spasm-sometimes it appears to be in her hips and at other times she just flops over and her whole body will just jump over onto the floor
