Can't jump anymore, limp, no loss of appetite, thick drool,

Customer Question

Can't jump anymore, limp, no loss of appetite, thick drool, occasional tremor. Previously very active dog. Been acting weird since Wed night.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: Yes, no wounds on feet, no misshapen limbs, will go for walks, just limps and is unsteady. Almost looks like a pinched nerve in a human leg, but the drooling and occasional tremors bother me.
JA: The veterinarian will know what to do. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Pickles 4
JA: Is there anything else the veterinarian should be aware of about Pickles?
Customer: We do live in Florida and I doubt it was a Bufo Toad since this started last Wednesday
