Shaking and not using back legs??

My sister's dog, a cava-poo, was shaking and not using her back legs. They are at the vet now. Has anyone heard of this? Any ideas?

I am very worried for her.

Oh no! Poor little thing...
I wouldn't know. Keep us updated. I hope she is better soon.

TTFN,

you hate to diagnose just by a sentence so I will not attempt to do so. But this did happen to Cash when he was a year old. but it was after a week of fever, no fever, fever and then he went lame at which point we were rushed to a neurologist. It was never 100% diagnosed, but he responded to two antibiotics so it was likely tick borne or a protazoan.

sending out good wishes to your sister and her baby. it's a good thing they are at the vet and if the vet doesn't suggest a neurologist or just treating for tick borne diseases. please keep us posted.

Thank you for that input. Her hips are okay and the bloodwork results are not back yet.

She has her at home with her.

The vet X rayed her hips and they were okay. She was still shaky in her back legs but seems to be doing better with some pain meds.

Now I am feeling worried for Nala because we were just in Virginia and I am hoping she didn't get Lyme disease or something like that. I may get her some bloodwork just to be safe.

Will keep you posted!
