Aloha! You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin
I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. If your friend's dog had been normal until this event but became suddenly ataxic ("drunken sailor"), I would consider that he ingested a recreational or prescription drug or had been intoxicated by another chemical or perhaps suffered a partial seizure (previously called petit mal).
Has he remissed quickly or does he continue to act abnormally?

I'm just following up on our conversation about your pet. How is everything going?
