Default Puppy head shaking and balance not good

11 week old puppy was fine all day playing on beach like normal, then home and a long nap, woke up and seemed like he was going to puke. Then he started shaking head back and forth like a bobble head and seemed wobbly on his legs. He drank some water and went back to sleep and doesn't seem to be in any pain. He just had his second round of puppy shots yesterday and the vet said he was healthy. Of course the vets closed. Any ideas on what thus might be would be appreciated.

some sort of toxins or something at the beach? Seems like I saw something like this somewhere before that was killing dogs at a beach. Don't want to alarm you, but I wouldn't go back until you find the source of the problem.

Or it could be a reaction to the vaccines.

Maybe water in the ears? Mine did that excessively until she would shake herself dizzy and hit something...just a guess since she was at the beach...good luck!

May be ear issue? Water in his ears? Infection?

Vet visit is best if still having problems.

If pup drank too much sea water, could be dehydrated and weak. Go to the vet. Wobbly is never good.

Did she drink a lot of the water while at the beach? Water Intoxication?

Sounds a lot like an ear infection, i work at a Humane society and i've seen some cats get this. They have wobbles heads, head is tilted and they cant walk good if at all- it is curable and most of them walk normal again with their heads almost back to normal.
But this could be anything, like what others said, toxins or the vaccines.
Good luck!
