A few hrs ago...

A few hrs ago my 8 mnth old dog went out came back and was fine , later my youngest son had her on leash i made him stop well suddenly she was wobbly side to side bith head and body, wide stance and like her backside would give out or if she held her head up she would almost fall back.... shes been sleeping mostly since... shed jerk awke since she managed to jump on couch beside me and sleep she vomited once and then climbed inbed with my daughter like normal but head still a bit wobbly i dont know if she got hurt with my son or what

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?

No. Other then it was sudden

Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. I'm sorry you're going through this with your pup. It sounds like a neurological problem based on what you're describing. My top two concerns would be some sort of trauma to the head or neck accidentally, or if she could have ingested something toxic, either a plant, a household chemical, a yard treatment, someone's medication etc. The best thing to do tonight would be to get her to an emergency vet tonight for evaluation if at all possible that way they can run some bloodwork to determine what is going on.

I was thinking MAYBE neck or head bc she was totslly fine she came in ate her food and water was playing with my son with the stinking collar and leash i said stop and then noticed her wobbly and wide stance she been sleeping on an off since, hard to rouse sometimes but then would wake right up for a bit she can walk but standing still or sitting she wobbles... and almost falls over she vomited once and has been in bed with my girl since but more awake..

That's good that she is more awake now. I think that is the most likely cause based on what you're describing but could still be a toxin as well.
