Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

How long has he had these signs?

Does he have any weakness, lameness, or changes (ie wounds, instability, lack of use) with either leg?

Any history of an attack or head trauma?

Any fever or access to toxins?
