Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you 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:

Any history of trauma or injury?

Does she have any voluntary movement or feeling (you may need to pinch a toe to check for reaction) in her legs/feet?

What is she fed?

Any fever?

Any access to toxins (ie plants, drugs, chemicals, etc)?
