I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help I hope that you've already had Bruiser attended to by his vet. His symptoms are important but they're not pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of any one particular disorder. Seizure disorder, intoxication by a drug, chemical, or insecticide, or any serious metabolic disease can manifest as you're described.

May I have an update on Bruiser, please?
