Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
Do you mean that he is wobbly or walking as if drunk?
Any access to toxins or pet unfriendly plants?
Does he have a head tilt? Any circling?
Any vomiting, nausea, or appetite loss?
Are his eyes appearing to flick back and forth as if he is watching something that isn't there?

Do you think he is weak, sore, or stiff in his legs?
Did he have any falls, trauma, or a lot of exercise yesterday?
