Hello, my name is*****’d be happy to help with your question. I’m a licensed veterinarian and I’ve been in practice since 2012. The bulk of my experience is in emergency medicine and critical care.
Based on the limited information I have here, the top two possibilities that come to mind are pain and seizures.

I do recommend that Duke be seen by a veterinarian today. Try giving your regular veterinarian a call first to see if they have availability. If they don’t, you can try calling several clinics in your area. If you can’t find any regular clinics, you can try your local 24/7 emergency veterinary hospital. This may be something simple like pain (a hurt neck or back for example) that only needs something like pain relief medications. If the veterinarian feels it is more serious, they’ll be able to recommend additional diagnostics and treatments.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any additional questions or concerns. It was my pleasure helping you today; thank you for choosing JustAnswer. I wish you and Duke the best of luck, take care.
