My dog's back legs
are not working well, she seems scared and can barely walk. Her eyes
are twitching back and forth and she just vomitted a little food and mostly stomach
acids. She wants to wander but really can't keep herself up, both back legs failing and almost falling sideways. was breathing heavy.
She is a 11ish (we adopted her when she was two-ish, they did not know for sure), Sheltie/Shepherd mix.
She has had a slight limp in her front leg for a while and shakes generally when resting. She is now on a pillow wrapped in a blanket next to me, breathing more shallowly now.
She does not seem to be in pain. A few years ago she was injured and she recovered but she cries easily when in pain.
I can't afford to take her to emergency vet after hours and when I have done that in the past they just ran a bunch of test and did not know.
It sounds neurological to me. She is a lot slower than she used to be and isn't able to follow verbal directions as much any more.
How do I know if she is dying?
