Customer Question
My American bulldog is...

My American bulldog is shaking and drooling. He seems to have weakness in his rear legs. He is stumbling a bit. The only thing I can think of that has changed is the fact that I put down fire ant repellant today

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?

No obvious signs of injury, he let me manipulate his legs with no crying or fighting

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the American Bulldog's name and age?

Sarge and he's 5

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Sarge?

Nothing comes to mind

He is eating but he really struggles to get up from the ground. His walking looks very strained. Looks like a newborn deer

Can you share a video of what you're seeing?

Has this improved at all since the original onset?

Does he do any better on high-traction surfaces like grass, carpet or concrete?
