Samson is the only one of my 8 dogs born here (Jan. 12, 2008) and the only survivor of 7 pups. His father was a purebred Malinois. His mother, a Shepherd mix, was only 8 months old. A local vet said Molly was too young to pass along essential immunization. Except for excessive anxiety and barking, Samson has grown up normally until an hour ago when he was hustled outdoors to vomit. He did not vomit, however; rather he stumbled toward the front yard and staggered right into a tree. He seemed disoriented, panting, tail between his legs. I steadied him for 3-4 minutes before he walked off on his own (tail still lowered.) Within 12-15 more minutes, he seemed completely normal again. My question: In your opinion, is this likely to happen again? Should I have a vet check him anyway? Could it have been a small stroke (like the TIA I had in 2011)? A seizure of some sort? I’ll appreciate your input.
