Hello Michelle1974, senior dogs present with so many issues as they age, it can be very difficult to pinpoint an issue. With my previous senior the wobblies were sign of arthritis moving in. If you have not had a geriatric blood panel done on your dog in the past couple of years I would start with that and see if everything is working well and go from there. Good luck with your pup. We love pics by the way!

I would Vet him. As DD says there are so many possible causes. Plus, dogs are very stoic and he may not be showing pain but that doesn't mean he is not in pain. Being sick all day Monday might be coincidence or it might be related some how. Please call your Vet.

I agree, it could be a number of things so best checked with your vet. I have experienced this in one of my dogs when they contracted a tick disease so there are numerous possibilities.
