    DefaultMolly seemed disoriented/drunk for about 15 seconds

    Okay so I have a call into the vet but the weirdest thing just happened...we got back from a walk and Molly drank a bunch of water. She started to walk out of the kitchen and I thought she was limping. I went to check on her and she was disoriented and kind of staggering like she was drunk. Just as quick as it happened she was over it and bounding over to her antler and acting like nothing happened. She wanted to play and seems like she is okay. Nothing has changed as far as diet and I really don't think she has gotten into anything. Does this sound like a stroke/seizure?

    Have you ever tested her for EIC?

    How old is she? My dog suffered a stroke when he was very old and had similar symptoms.

    Sophie did this once. She staggered and almost fell into the wall. Turned out she had an ear infection.

    It could also be epilepsy. I had a lab with epilepsy and his first seizures sounded very similar. I originally thought he'd jumped off the bed and hit his head on the wall. It wasn't it happened a few more times that we figured it out.

    Could be many things.. ear infections can cause equilibrium issues.. and that would be an easier fix than EIC, epilepsy, etc. I would take her to the vet just to be sure - that would worry me!

    We went to the vet and he couldn't find anything wrong with her. In fact he said she was exceptionally healthy. It hasn't happened again. Will keep an eye on her and if we have issues again will dig deeper on EIC, epilepsy, etc.
