Hello, My name is Terri.
It is my pleasure to assist you today!
I am reviewing your question right now and will reply in a few minutes.

Expert:  Terri replied 1 month ago.

Is there any chance Church ingested something he found outside?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
We believe so. Possible some bleach mixed with water. About 2 cups of bleach mixed with 3 gallons of water.
Expert:  Terri replied 1 month ago.

Do you see any sores or burns in his mouth?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No top of mouth is white nose is warm. He has been eating lots of food and drinking water. Just have him some bread. He is now laying down.
Expert:  Terri replied 1 month ago.

Thanks so much for your very helpful reply.

If the solution was caustic you would see burns in his mouth.

Give him an ounce of milk to deactivate the bleach in his stomach.

I do not think it is the cause of his dizziness and drunken behavior.

That sounds more like Vestibular syndrome which is caused by an ear infection.

Give him 13.5 mg of dramamine to relieve the symptoms.
