Customer Question

My lab will be 13 in November. she has been failing for about two months. The vet had her on tramadon, gabapentin and cyclosporine ... After 3 weeks of that she had bloody diaharia ... We choose to take her off all of that and see how she does. Her stools are normal, she's eating, drinking, and having normal bowel function. She still has red bumps between her toes but doesn't lick them much. She does have spasms with her hind quarters when she lying down and has some hip dysphasia and take metcam am every am. She falls at times and can't get up and at times she recovers by herself. I'm wondering if she has something similar to Parkinson's ? Her back legs spams when she sleeps or tries to change positions when she's lying down. any suggestions would be great. Thank you
