Hello, you are through to Dr Linda, a UK based vet.
I'm sorry to hear he is so unwell.From what you have said, I would want him seen by a vet right away.They will examine him and may run some tests such as a blood test and blood pressure check.His signs could have many symptoms including toxin ingestion, idiopathic vestibular and liver disease. It is also possible he has had a seizure.Hopefully we can have him seen right away.
