My 5 year old poodle just developed the same problems over night. Our vet says he has a rare disease, called it by a long forgien name that I can't begin to repeat. Don't know how they get it or what causes it or what to do to help him. More tests are scheduled but so far every thing is normal except for walking like a drunk, drawing his back legs and a wobbly head similar to a bobble doll.
