Is she on pain medication post operatively? it may be that the pain medication is not being processed properly by the liver and it is making her more sleepy or sedate than normal and this is the reason that she is wobbly. Another cause could be that she is becoming encephalopathic which means that her liver is not yet able to function normally and cannot keep up with the increased blood flow just yet. If this happens around meal time, I would be more suspicious of this and recommend seeing your vet for advice about adjusting the medications she is on to help with this or adding additional medication in the short term. If the Keppra is new, this may also be causing her to be wobbly as this is a common side effect and will go away with time. Keppra in conjunction with other medications for pain can result in wobbliness and sedation so you may try a lower dose of the pain medication, or a longer interval between doses (do not change the dosing of the Keppra without talking to your vet though). Does this help address your concerns today?
