Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
How long has she had these signs?
Were they sudden in onset or progressive over time?
Does she drag the legs or try use them?
Can she voluntary move the hind legs at all?
Can she feel the back legs (you may need to poke the skin with a needle to discern if she can)?
Does she have a fever?
What vitamin did he give?
