Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. There are a couple things I would be concerned about here. It is entirely possible that she had a seizure and was in the post ictal phase, where they are very disoriented. You may also see these symptoms with dementia in dogs. Being that she is acting normal now, that probably isn't the case, but it could still be early enough to be sure. Lastly, there can be an internal organ system issue that can affect the neurological system. A liver problem or even a brain tumor can cause symptoms like this that are intermittent. If acting normal, I would just monitor him and keep your appointment for Friday. If you see these symptoms again, try to get it on video for your vet to see. I am leaning towards a seizure as the cause right now based on what you described. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
