Hello. My name is***** see that Fred is having a difficult time right now. I hope that I can help you with your question. I do need a little bit more information though. What type of dog is Fred?
Expert:  Melanie Goble replied 1 year ago.
If Fred's legs and ability to walk are not improving dramatically, I would recommend going to a veterinarian right away as difficulty with the back legs and ataxia (wobbling, difficulty standing, walking, etc.) can be a sign of neurologic (brain or spinal cord) or other internal problems. If he continues to vomit, then Fred may also become very dehydrated, potentially making his problem worse.

I was just checking in to see how Fred is doing today. If I have answered your questions satisfactorily, please rate me. Otherwise, I will open up this conversation for another veterinarian to speak with you.

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 looks like Dr. Melanie has opted out and you have not yet viewed the question. If you have other questions pertaining to Fred's health, please let me know.
