Hello, my name is***** and I'm happy to help answer your question about Puppy. I'm sorry to hear that Puppy is having some hind limb weakness. Can you describe it in more detail for me so that I can give you the most specific info? Things that would help me include how long has this been going on, is it progressively worsening or staying about the same, have you noticed any muscle loss, does Puppy have a history of orthopedic or neurologic issues, etc.
