Dr. Please help us. We have a weenie dog we adore male 8 years old. He has had 4 episodes up until last night of not being able to move his back legs. It resolves on its own within an hour. Last night he had 3 episodes each lasting 30-45 min. He woke up, stretched and was gonna jump.off the bed to his food area. He turned around and hobbled next to me and was paralyzed for 45 min. It resolves. Help!

Hi. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** and I've been a veterinarian for 15 years. Thank you for your question. How long ago you notice the first episode of this? Has your vet examined / evaluated him for having these events? When he was paralyzed, was he conscious and interactive with you?
