Is there any chance King ate something he shouldn't have, including pills, plants, trash, poisons or anything out of the ordinary? Has King ever experienced anything like this before? Is King currently on any medications, and is there any change he received an over dose? Disorientation, drooling and enlarged pupils, as combined clinical signs, could indicate some form of toxicosis or poisoning. I would suggest taking King to your veterinarian as soon as possible for a physical examination.
