My dog keep getting up and falling down

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help your dog. What is the dog's name and age?

Casey, hes 13. Yesterday he was 100%. We've been joking how he never acts his age. We found rocks neatby and dont know if he was attackes. And he has a bump on his belly and on his back.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Casey?

He is only eating from the hand. His gums are pink ans have some red dots. He had vision problems before but it seems like he just cant see right now

Experience: Hello, I am a small animal veterinarian and am happy to discuss any concerns & questions you have on any species.
Verified

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian & I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How long has he had these signs?

Does he tend to fall to one side?

Is he weak or wobbly? Or stiff with his legs?

Any head tilting, circling, or pressing his head into the wall?

Does he seem sore?

Can you take a photo of the bumps so I can see what you are seeing? To post it, you can use the paper clip button on the tool bar above the text box (last icon). Or if you cannot see that, then post it on any site (ie Flickr, Photobucket, Imgr Instagram, etc) & paste the link here for me.
