I am sorry to hear about Cole being paralyzed. How long as he been like this?

Sudden paralysis can be caused by a disc protruding into the spinal cord, a tumor in the spinal cord, a stroke, heart disease, many things. The place to start to find out what is wrong, and if it can be treated, is an exam by a veterinarian to check his pulses, circulation, reflexes, etc. Can you get him to a veterinarian today?
