Good Afternoon and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

I am so sorry to hear about Sammy's condition. This could be due to trauma to her back or neck or from an infection. It is important that your vet examines Sammy to know for sure. For now, it would help to give Banamine if you have this on hand or get this from your vet to decrease the inflammation on the nerve supply that has been blocked or damaged.

Does that make sense to you?

Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.
