Customer Question
He's a 6 month...

He's a 6 month old husky and his pupils are dilated, he's lethargic, can't seem to walk straight and the white of his eyes is slightly red, and he urinated when he was laying down

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name?

Thor

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

He's eating and drinking normally. Possibly could have gotten into marijuana, but not likely.

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Thor, please?

He does sound as if he were intoxicated by a prescription or recreational drug, other chemical, or by a metabolic disorder that affects the brain.

Completely back to normal today. Full energy, no head bobbing, eating, drinking, no accidents either.
