kcobean is an unknown quantity at this point
2 boys, same scary symptoms

We have 2 9-1/2 year old ABD/APBT mix dogs. About 7 weeks ago one of them had a weird issue where he got unsteady on his feet, vomited and urinated in the house right in front of me. It was like he suddenly became incontinent. Any time we’d go to pet his head he would flinch. We thought maybe he had a small stroke. Took him to the vet and they found nothing wrong. Over the course of the next few dayshe got better and is back to his bouncy self.

Today, we come downstairs and our other dog vomited in his crate overnight, and when we let him out he exhibited the exact same symptoms. Incontinence, unsteady on his feet, flinchy and lethargic. He also had no appetite which is REALLY odd for him. He almost seemed drunk. His symptoms were identical to his brother’s last month.

He seems to be getting better as the day goes by but it’s pretty scary.

No changes in diet at all. They eat Purina Pro-Plan grain free. No changes in activity. Poop has been normal. We don’t think they ate anything unusual.

Anyone ever seen this before?

kcobean, sorry to hear about your dogs. By the symptoms and the fact that it has happened to both dogs I would suspect either a virus or they both ate something without you knowing it. Are they left outside by themselves? Wondering if someone outside the house could have gave them something poisonous because the symptoms would match.
Please let us know how things go as it could help someone in the future.

Joe

Did you get any blood work done when you took them to the vet?
I think Joe is prob right about them eating something they shouldn't have. But if blood work was done then it would have shown up.
I'll assume since they are the same age and mix that they are siblings, which opens you up to genetic defects. In which case if nothing showed on blood work, and it happens again you may want to seek out a neurologist.
