Shepherd retriever husky mix
Eating and drinking normal
Going thru a definite growth spurt
Going to the bathroom normally

So it started yesterday morning. Her front legs started to buckle and give out. This continued for a min then she snapped out of it and was completely fine. Back to her normal self, playing and running. Today it happend 4 times through out the day. Noticed she was more dizzy and drunken looking today.
She has a appointment with the vet on Friday but until then any thoughts on what it could be?

It could be a wide array of things. In the clinic stumbling around and difficulty walking meant anything from Vestibular Disease to Distemper. It could even mean a brain tumor or mild seizures.

It's good you have a vet appointment, and it's good that she's eating and drinking, but Friday is a long ways away for the more serious options. I'd watch her very closely, and if she develops and new symptoms or worsens, take her to the vet immediately.

Any new medications? Our dog had much the same symptom, which turned out to be a side effect from some oral flea med we had her on. Needless to say she does not get that one any more, or ever again.

apart from medical reasons mentioned above, i would just like to say one of my cats reacted the once like that to flea treatment, maybe an allergic reaction, but it is better to get it checked.
