I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. This unusual behavior for a 10 week old puppy suggests the ingestion of a recreational or prescription drug or intoxication by a chemical such as an insecticide. Do you think that Piper may have been exposed to such a thing? Less likely, encephalopathy (brain disorder) can cause such behavior - a form of seizure, perhaps. May I have an update on Piper, please?
