Something's wrong with my puppy

I have a five month old puppy we found and she started seeming odd. She was sitting with my parents and all of a sudden started drooling and shaking and we set her down but she could sort of walk but was wobbly. My dad took her outside and she was running but kind of drunk and when she tried to stand still her head would shake and her body and she would slide down. She was drooling a lot and wanted to sleep. I wanted to take her to emergency but my parents wouldn't let me. She's now sleeping with me but has been shaky but responsive to walking but her head isn't stable and she limps over it's been hours. She stopped drooling but wouldn't open her mouth so I gave her water in a syrange and she finally just opened her mouth but is still shaky and just went to sleep her breathings normal but her gums were white but went back to pink. She was spayed two weeks ago but it looks healed and we haven't had any problems it was just random she was fine all day and all of a sudden it hit. We also rescued her brother and they're constantly together and he's fine but I have no idea what's wrong and they're my dogs but I have no clue what to do.

We've had her since she was three weeks and she's caught up on shots and we did the blood work at the vet who gave her an exam and everything was fine.

She may have had a seizure which is sometimes hard to diagnose. I would keep an eye on her and if it happens again, she should go into the Vet.

Sounds like either a seizure or distemper

sounds to me like an anaphylactic reaction to something (like a bee sting) if gums where white. Should improve now that pink again. if there is a next time, urge your parents to take her to emergency because if in anaphylactic shock, could easily die if not treated soon. Why would your parents have a dog and then not want to treat it?

Yup, a seizure, get this baby to the vets...stat!! You had her from when she was 3 weeks old? Boy, that's way too young to be away from Mom. But that being said, please get to vet.
