Hello and thank you for using this site to help you.

What breed of dog is this?

When was the last time he ate?

What color are his gums?

What is his temperature when taken rectally?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
he is a hound mix retriever
he ate yesterday afternoon
gums look normal
Dog Veterinarian: Sally G., Dog Training Consultant replied 3 months ago

Thank you for that information. Of course there is a concern of a neurological problem within the spine if he cannot get up and walk. That would require Vet care to determine this.

Did he eat anything different at all since yesterday that would have cause stomach upset enough to prevent him from eating today?

How about a temperature, can you take that rectally? A temperature would indicate possible infection.
