During heavy flea season, before I sprayed the house, we had a problem. I put drops on the dogs, but apparently it didn't work for the ****zu. He had these same symptoms, only he would collapse for a few seconds. Can't remember if there was drooling tho. He was given a capstar pill (kills ALL fleas in 30 minutes) and iron suppliments. Vet said it would take 3 days to make more blood. We caught it in time. What an eye opener!! I felt awful and responsible for not checking his body for fleas, like I do with Jake. He wasn't scratching much. Anyway, do some blood work. Could be anemic. There's other causes for anemia besides fleas. Good luck. Hope he feels better.
