    Hi, I’m new here and hoping someone could help! We have a 4 year old pug and he’s been having strange turns, they are very irregular, they have been once or twice a year, usually in an evening in the winter months. He’s been for a walk usually. His bag legs go and he doesn’t seem to be able to stand very well, he becomes shaky, his head had shuck in the past, in a way he looks drunk, each time we take him to the vets, they test his bloods, responses, electrolytes etc and it all comes back fine, they put him on fluids and he seems to be back to normal by the morning! He’s been to see a neurological specialist who’s monitored and tested him but can’t see what is wrong or causing this! It’s scary as he is such an active happy dog and no one has any answers, and as he gets better quickly and the episodes are so random, us and the vets don’t want to do anything invasive. Please help! Sorry for the long post!

    Could it be a drop in blood sugar after exercising?

    Or something neurological?

    Signs can be:

    1. Stumbling, Lack of Balance, or Coordination
    2. Shaking of the Head
    3. Persistent Trembling
    4. Dragging of the Paws
    5. Darting or "Flickering" Eyes (Nystagmus)
    6. Visual Disturbances

    8. Chronic Tail-Chasing
    9. Seizures
