Good afternoon,I have s three year old lab who’s pretty active. We’ve just got back from a walk were he was bouncing around and socialising with other dogs. Now he’s home he’s very spaced out and doesn’t want to eat which is very unlike him. I just wondered whaf I should do should I take him straight to the vets?

Hi.

Dr. Paul Brazzell here.

Does he respond to his name?

Any twitching or abnormal movement of the limbs?

Any signs of pain?

He responds to his name but just sitting there, he’s kind of wobbly and seems spaced out. I just took him for a pee and when he finished and was walking back he was continuing to pee while walking along which he’s never done before. He’s very nervous suddenly and when I go near him he jumps away

I wonder if he had a seizure.

Any chance of him getting into moldy bread or other things in garbage?

Can you give him some honey by mouth now?

I think he’s more than likely eaten moldy bread in the park! What do I do? I’ve just noticed he’s peed in his bed where he’s been lying.Do you think it’s bread that’s done this? What should I do?

Okay.

Well we generally give them supportive care- fluids etc etc

And we treat with Methocarbamol to settle down the muscle twitches and tremors.

Make sense?

If he is really struggling then I would take him in.
