Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 10 months ago.

I am so sorry that you have not heard back from anyone before now. How is Coonie doing?

1) What breed is she?
2) Do her symptoms persist?
3) What is happening with her rear legs? Can she move them?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
she is part Norwegian Forest and yes she still has symptoms this morning, she still can't stand
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 10 months ago.

Can you post a video of what she's doing?

Does she have any history of injury or illness? Heart murmur?

When you firmly hold her paws, do the front paws seem to be a different temperature than the back paws? Same?

It doesn't matter anymore she passed away about 9 this morning.
