Default HELP :( Remi is dizzy and falling over

This morning my fiancee woke up and Remi seemed fine; about an hour later he was brushing his teeth and Remi stumbled into the bathroom and couldn't stand up. He was very shaky on his feet and seemed to be disoriented.
Danny immediately gave him something to eat and a sugar supplement because we know that sugar is a big issue with Chi's.
We took him to the vet and we should have bloodwork results back Friday or Monday - anyone ever experience this?
If so what was it ? How did it turn out?
Thanks
Teresa

It is hard to tell from what you've described. It could have been a hypoglycemic episode. The symptoms are very common in hypoglycemic episode. It could have been a seizure. I had an epileptic dog and when he had seizures, that is what it was like. It could be caused by something else. Once the bloodwork comes back, hopefully you'll get an answer.

Sorry he didn't feel good! Is he back to himself now?

He is not back to himself; but Danny said he is def. better. The vet monitored him all day - he took him all over with him LOL but I just feel uncertain. The vet didn't seem to have any answers whatsoever and he made me so nervous. We are very scared we are going to loose our chi

Try to keep thinking positive! Hopefully you will get some answers when the blood test results come back. Like Ashley said, it could be a number of different things. It could be something that's easily treatable, you never know. If it happens again, maybe a video of his behaviour would help the vet? Not sure. I hope he starts to get back to his normal self very soon.

There is a inner ear problem (vestibular) that makes dogs very unsteady on their feet. Is he tilting his head at all. Strokes also do this. Both can be treated and many dogs do just fine for years afterwards. Good luck to you
