Our pug started having muscle spasms about 40 minutes ago.

Customer Question

Our pug started having muscle spasms about 40 minutes ago. Her back legs give out and she collapses. She is restless, can't settle down because she keeps having the spasms. What could the problem be? This has never happened before. She is only three years old!

We are not aware of her eating anything toxic. We are very careful and don't use toxic chemicals on our property, i.e. such as weed killer spray and so forth. Ellen in AZ
