He doesn’t seem to be in pain unless we move him around. I’m a massage therapist and was massaging his hips to see if I could feel anything or if he reacted to a specific spot... nothing. I can move his hips back and forth without him caring.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I’m wondering what he could have done or what could be causing him to not be able to move

Is Oreo able to move his legs at all? Is he dragging them?

Will you please attach video of what you’re seeing? There is an attachment function on the page that should allow you to post pictures and video. You can also use websites like http://www.imgur.com and youtube.com to upload pictures and video respectively. They’re all FREE. Once this is done, a set of links will appear. You can then post the link back and I can access them. If you are located in the USA and texting pictures/video would be preferable, please let me know. There is an additional charge for this service but it can take the guesswork out of trying to get information back to me and facilitate a faster response.
