Welcome! Thanks for asking your question. My name is***** will do my best to help you today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- Any vomiting, diarrhea or coughing?

2- How long has this been going on?

Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 10 months ago.

I'll follow up for Dr. Peter for you. We're mostly concerned with such a young dog ingesting something inappropriate such as a prescription or recreational drug such as the THC in marijuana when ataxia ("drunken sailor") and drooling/vomiting is seen. Is that a possibility? Her eating is a positive prognostic sign.
