Friend, based on history it does sound like he had a seizure if this is similar to what happened before. However, it is also possible that what is happening now may be a completely different problem like a bulging disc that prolapsed and is putting pressure on the spinal cord interfering with the motor function to the back legs. Unfortunately, on history only it will not be possible for me to determine if that was a seizure or a neurological problem like a bulging disc, I am sorry. I would recommend having him checked by the nearest ER veterinarian for a hands-on examination. It is important to rule out a bulging disc; if he has a bulging disc and goes untreated he may not regain the function of his legs. For this reason, it is important to have him checked tonight by ER veterinarian. I realize that this answer may not be entire to your liking, and I regret being the bearer of information that you really don’t want to hear. But it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I to provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information. I hope you understand.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
You're welcome. :)
