I am very sorry to see that none of our other Experts have reached out to you before now. I just came online and found that your question had not been addressed. How is your companion at this time?

Do you happen to have a video of what you witnessed so that I may also see it?

no I do not, I didn't think of doing that. :(
Dog Veterinarian: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 6 months ago

If this happens again, please video what you're seeing. The internet makes it especially difficult to help someone as we cannot see what you're seeing. If Jax is a small breed dog there's a potential that he may have had a bout of low blood sugar which may have made standing difficult. I would urge you to keep a product like honey or syrup on hand and give this orally if you witness the symptoms again. A few drops every 2-4 hours should work quite well. Additionally, make sure he's eating every 4-6 hours, as well, even if just small amounts of food.
