My 2 yr. old female dachshund all of a sudden is walking as if drunk and stumbling. She ate 2 dishes of her food, kibbles and all, which she has never eaten so much. She is drinking a lot of water and has a hoarse cough. She still trys to play but is not really up to it. Any suggestions on what this is and what I can do on a Sunday night??
No, I haven't taken her temp and she seems to be feeling better the past hour or so. She is not as disoriented and her eyes look better. I am thinking she probably ingested a spider etc. She had the same symptoms only much more severe when she was 12 weeks old and weighed only 2.5 pounds. She was put on an iv pumping antibiotics into her and kept overnight. So...am thinking must be another bout of the same only now she is larger and able to shake it off easier. If she is not totally up to snuff tomorrow am. we will get her off to the vet. Thanks for the help.
