Seeing the Vet tomorrow
This very thing is happening with my dog (Obadiah), too. He is 6 years old (seemingly too young to have arthritis). Three weeks ago, he tried to jump off of the couch, and when he landed, his back paws fell out from under him. He began shaking and finally vomited. The episode lasted for about 5 to 10 minutes, and afterwards he was his normal self.
Then, a week ago, we were on a walk and he began to noticeably limp. After a minute or so he was back to his normal self again.
About a month ago, I did begin to notice that Obadiah was tripping from time to time, and his when he walks his rear seems to waddle a bit more dramatically than usual. Save the two incidences and these minor changes in his gait (which may only be imagined on my par), he seems to be carrying on (enjoying walks, playing chase, his appetite hasn't changed) as usual.
I'm taking him to the vet tomorrow, just to get some peace of mind. I'll let you know what I learn.
