My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that Rowdy has such a severe neurologic disorder.
I would strongly recommend taking him for the MRI. Based on your history, I would wonder if he has blown a disk at the attachment of his tail to his pelvis. There is a surgery to correct this- the blown disk is removed from between the two bones.
The following is a link to a nice description of disc disease in dogs:
After the MRI, you and the neurologist will be able to make a good decision about the treatment plan for Rowdy. If he is fixable, then have surgery. If he is not fixable, then you may have to consider euthanasia.
Best regards, ***** ***** this answer helps you.
