Yorkie toppling over and walking sideways
<REPOST, trying to get help asap>Hello everyone, I'm Dee, I'm 14 and I have a little Yorkie named Lucky. He's 3 years old and the sweetest little baby ever! I love him so much. I have a question that hopefully someone can answer because I'm very concerned and Scared for my baby. Recently, today 2/8/16||2/9/16 Lucky ate my burger when I went to go use the restroom, so as punishment I pat his butt and put him in his cage for a couple hours (he had breaks.) When he was let out, I let him in my room like usual <This was about 11:30pm> I played my computer game, Sims 4 for about 30 minutes until I noticed Lucky struggling to lift his head/ uncomfortable so I set him on my bed to lay down, then I noticed him toppling over in his side every time he tries to walk. First I thought it was just my blanket because it was scrunched up and he was on it, but I decided to make sure, so I moved it, then went towards my door and called him to see if something was wrong. Sure enough he toppled over struggling to take only a few steps to the edge of the bed, then wouldn't jump off like he normally does. I got worried so I played with him some more, or so I tried but he wasn't getting up. I could see he wanted to but wouldn't and it broke my heart. My poor little lucky He's always walked and ran to the side so I wasn't worried about that. I thought he hurt his leg but he walks on it fine until he falls over. I tried to read a thread sorta related to my situation and something about liver shunt I think? I cried next to him because I could tell somethings wrong. Please please please someone help me

If your dog cannot stand without failing over, you need to get him to the vet ASAP. No one online can diagnose what is wrong with your pup, only a vet seen in person can help this little guy.
