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 2 months ago.

1) When was bloodwork last performed?
2) Which legs are giving him the most difficulty?
3) Can he walk if he's placed on a high-traction surface like carpet and placed into a standing position?
