    My dog occasionally cannot balance well
    Leosringfever posted:
    My 5 years old male dog scratches his bed and gathers his blankets between his two hind leg after few minutes doing that, he passes urine and cannot stand up. His back leg looks weak. But after few minutes later he get up again and walk normal. The urinating happens only one time though. All this happening starts few weeks ago. He neutered and he never showed any sexual behavior before except he tried escape home only every spring.He sometimes losses his balance without all that excitement but except few times a day doing that, he eats,walks. runs very normal. Is it all because of spring fever or something else?

    He could be having some type of seizure, too. That can cause behavior like this.
