Good afternoon and welcome to Just answer!! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
There are a number of things that ca cause this. The most likely is white muscle disease which is a lack of Vitamin E/Selenium. Also, there are parasites or infections that can cause problems with the neurologic system that shows with these symptoms. This may also be caused by trauma or injury that you may not be aware of. For this reason, so the following:
1. Give an injection of BOSE...dose is on the bottle that can be purchased at the farm supply along with these other medications. Give a second dose after 2 days.
2. Worm Samson with an all around wormer if this has not been done recently.
3. Give Penicillin G injections daily for 7 days.
4. Give aspirin at 5 mg per pound every 12 hrs to relieve inflammation that may have caused this condition.
If this does not help, have your vet examine Samson to be sure we have not missed something.
Does that make sense to you?
