|Today has been a pretty normal day here, the weather is nice, about 65 degrees, and no changes in diet for Ollie.
We went on a walk, then when we got home Ollie took a nap in his crate. He woke up and was really dizzy and couldn't walk straight or hardly stand up. About 20-30 seconds later he threw up what was left of his breakfast in his tummy. Nothing unusual in there.
As we were rushing around preparing to take him to the E-Vet, he got his legs back under him. For a few minutes he was still walking a little crooked but now (maybe 8 minutes after this happened) he is walking normally just with his tail tucked. For a few minutes after he was drooling a whole lot, but now he is drooling less, and as I've typed this he has stopped panting even. We checked his pupils and they are fine.
I called our vet and they said they didn't know if we should take him in or not, but that they were closing in a few minutes so they'd have to refer us to the E-Vet. Our backup vet in our area is closed.
Here is the delimma, we love Ollie a ton and want only what is best for him, regardless of cost. However, I don't have a real job this summer so money is tight plus hubby (who would have to drive since I can't) has a ton of grading to do for his class as grades are due very soon. If we need to go to the E-vet, we'll go. But if we don't need to, we'd rather save the money and hubby needs to be grading.
Any advice? The longer after the incident, the more back to normal he is, so that makes me think it is likely not poisoning.
