8 mo old Biewer Yorkie around 7 lbs. Just got his balls removed 2 weeks ago. Got a rabies vaccine 5 days ago. Dizzy symptoms include mild impairment of balance, still able to jump on and off couch, wobbly head trails off to the side. Seems dehydrated and won't drink any water. Possibly could have ingested cannabis or melatonin but highly unlikely. Breathing seems okay. Battery is dead in thermometer so can't check temp. Hypoglycemia? Also, is dehydration severe enough for urgent care? He isn't vomiting or anything. Pooped normal earlier today. His name is*****

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

How long has he had these signs?

Any chance of the Cannabis being ingested? Anything else (ie toxins, plants, chemicals, etc)?

Are his gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?

Is he worse after eating?
