Default Urgent! Boxer not acting normal

Good Evening,
Question to all boxer parents out there. I came home from work this evening and noticed a not so normal boxer. She is 2 acting as if she has vertigo or something similar. When sitting on the couch she leans to either side just staring into space. I noticed her back legs were somewhat giving out like trying to keep balance and at other times doing the same thing on the couch but standing. Super sleepy lays down a lot. Any suggestions!!! She has not eaten anything that she shouldn't have. Its almost like she is spacing out. Very weird not like her at all.

Get her into a vet and have some blood work done up. If you have a video camera recording exactly what she is doing and show it to your vet.

My last dog had the same symptoms with Vestibular Disease. His first symptom was involuntary rhythmic eye movements.

I would get to the vet. How old is she? This sounds very similar to an episode my dog Mo had when he was about 8. His eyes were jumping all around, he couldn't walk a straight line and looked like he was seeing things that weren't there. We ran him to the vet. It turns out he had geriactric vestibular disorder, which actually is common and passes on it's own in a matter of days. I would get her to the vet ASAP.

Here is some youtube video of a dog with geriactric vestibular disorder

Of course you need to get to the vet to make sure it isn't something else

Could be a number of things but all of them require a work up done by the vet. I hope she is ok.
