Hello, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I have been a veterinary nurse for 26 years.Thank you for allowing me to assist you today.
I am so sorry to hear Kobe is having some trouble with his back legs. In this breed my first concern would be that he could have a bulging disc in the spine that is protruding in to the spinal canal causing problems with hind limb and tail movement. Here is additional information on this
While more often seen in older dogs spinal tumors can cause the same problem.
Other possibilities could include
* Tick borne diseases
* Fungal infections such as valley fever
I know you are only trying to make him more comfortable but I would not recommend giving any additional Aleve. Nuproxin is not a drug we use in dogs and this can actually lead to kidney damage and destruction of the stomach lining resulting in bleeding. Please read the following information on the effects of nuproxin in dogs
Unfortunately this is going to take a hands on exam and most likely some images of the spine to provide a proper diagnosis. Some problems with discs in the spine are not able to be seen on x rays and your vet may refer you to a specialist for an MRI.
Can a dog recover from this type of problem in most cases yes but the cause has to be found and properly treated.
I would try to get him in to the vet as soon as possible. I would not give any additional over the counter medication and I would let the vet know that you have given the Aleve as it will prevent them from giving certain drugs for 7 days.
I know this is not what you wanted to hear but unfortunately without knowing the actual cause our hands are tied as to what should or can be done. Until you get him in I would keep him as still as possible. He should not be up walking except to go out to potty. You can use a heating pad on low covered with a towel on the lower back to help with any discomfort.
I hope this helps give you some direction. Please reply back if you have additional questions or concerns and I will be happy to continue.
