I've had a couple of cats with dizziness and it was middle or inner ear infections. They also didn't eat from nausea due to the dizziness.
Maybe get a second opinion or see a neurologist. If it's a viral infection, or bacterial it can be contagious and the second dog could have caught it from the other.
Even minor upper respiratory infections can cause secondary infections in various places, ie lungs is bronchitis, sinuses is sinus infections, ears is ear infections etc. Cats can carry the herpes virus just like the one that causes cold sores in people (not the STD). So whenever those cats get stressed, ie, moving, new pet or family member, fighting with other pet or among humans, loss of another pet or family member, they can get minor URI symptoms as minor as a few sneezes to full on illness. This can lead to ear infections and vestibular issues, balance problems from dizziness.
Or could be a neurological problem from eating something poison or toxic like berries, mushrooms or poop of a oiisoned animal. Both dogs could have eaten the same thing. Could also be tickborne diseases like Lyme or the many others out there.
