Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) What breed is Kramer?
2) Can you share a video of what it looks like when he tries to walk?
3) Is he dragging his legs?
4) On any medications at this time?
