    I'm afraid I have no answer but someone will help you here from the board. If you're uncomfortable with how your dog is then take him to the vet.

    If you're not sure I would take him to the vet. I hope he's okay

    They certainly can give us heart failure one minute and fine the next.Maybe just keep an eye on him the next couple days to make sure all is well.

    Husbands eh.....we went to a dog show today and they had tiny little toy dogs there..I pointed out to himself that we could never have one of those as he would probably stand on the poor thing!

    I'd get him to the vet right away. I don't like the sound of falling over & shaking. Please let us know how he goes.
