My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that Gunther is having walking problems. Based on your history, I would wonder about two different diseases in his spinal cord, a blown disc (intervertebral disk disease) or a blood clot in the spinal cord (Fibrocartilagenous embolism).
I have attached links to both of these diseases that explain in detail how they both work.
Your regular veterinarian can give you a high index of suspicion that you are dealing with one of these diseases but to make a final diagnosis you would need to take Gunther to see a veterinary neurologist.
Good luck to you and Gunther,
Best regards, ***** ***** this answer helps you.
