Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the dog's name and age?

Lobo, 10, St bernard

Veterinarian's Assistant: How old is Lobo?

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

He has been having problems getting up lately.

we can do that. have tried helping him to get up, but he slips on the floor and can't get a grip, also his front paws are not taking his weight. Is it anything to do with the bathing? also we got his nails clipped. He has no pain on any of his paws. He is responding well and can lift his paw for a "shake hand".
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

Able to move him to a carpeted area?
