Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years. I would like to assist you.
Can you tell me being in the country do you have Ticks?
Have you noticed any ticks on the dog?
Have you checked in between the toes? I suspect what you are seeing is Tick Paralysis. I cannot be sure because I cannot check him over but the description is that of a Tick paralysis: usually about 5 to 7 days after the ticks star feeding a toxin carried by them affects teh dog causing hin leg paralysis: http://www.peteducation.com/article.cfm?c=2+2105&aid=482
Please have the dog into the Vet and let them know this is a suspected Tick Paralysis. They can treat accordingly and he should regain the use of his leg after treatment.
