Customer Question
My dog was fine...

My dog was fine this morning and now a few hours later she suddenly can't stand on her hind legs. She's only 2

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?

Luna

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Luna?

I have her mom dad and 7 sisters n brothers. I kept them all when I found out my dog was pregnant. All my dogs have been sick on and off with g.I. issues like bloody diarrea and vomiting and I gone to the vet several times in the last month. All the tests come out negative over n over again and they've been on metronidazole because the vet thinks it's some kind of virus or bacterial infection. Even my cats got sick so I don't know what's going on but Luna was in a separate room for the last 2 and a half days cause she had some diarrhea and I didn't want it to spread so she's been in a crate most of the time. She's gotten better, this morning I walked her n everything was fine until an hour ago when I brought her out to be with everyone else, all of the sudden she can't stand on her back legs. I fed her and she did stand and walk around a couple minutes to come get some food but then she put her bottom down and she won't stand
