My dog was shaking uncontrollably drooling and couldn't walk…

Customer Question
Hi my dog was...

Hi my dog was shaking uncontrollably drooling and couldn't walk straight. It went for about 5-10 min and stopped and now he is up and running around like nothing happened

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?

There are no wounds and he didn't act like any of the paws were sensitive

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name and age?

Odin and between 2 and 3. I got him as a rescue so I'm not completely sure

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Odin?

Not sure if breed matters but he's a Rottweiler mix
