I have a female black lab who is only 3 years old. Recently she has spontaneously been lossing the use of her hind legs. she will be laying on the floor or walking and her back legs will stop working and she will frantically drag her self around the house by her front legs for a minute until she is able to walk like normal.
She seems fine and is not over weight. I thought at first that she might have been sleeping on them the wrong way and they were falling asleep but it has happened too often.
Normally if a dog has a hip or patella problem it effects both sides. It could be a number of things. If you have a knowledgeable vet, I would give them a call. If you do think they can handle a proper diganosis, ask to be referred to a ortho doc. Rule out those issues first, then they might consider a nerologist.
He's your friend,your partner,your defender your dog.You are his life,his love,his leader. He will be yours faithful and true to the last beat of his heart.You owe it to him to worthy of such devotion
