9 month old GSD can't walk.....any thoughts?
My GSD is 9 months old. He went from playing and running like a normal puppy one night to waking up fine and then after breakfast looking a bit wobbly on his hind legs. By night he could barely walk and needed to rest after every few steps. Thats was Wednesday. Thursday there was no change.
Today we needed to use a towel to help support him when he wanted to walk. Like for bathroom needs.
I took him to the vet today. They did a series of xrays and they can not determine whats wrong. His spine looks good, legs look good, he did not see signs of pano in the xray (he did say that doesn't mean he does not have it, but it's unlikely both back legs would be affected at once.) and his hips look fine.
He gave him a steroid shot and wants me to call in the morning to see if it helped. The xrays are also being sent to the ortho vet who looked at his front leg when he was having problems with it. That was pano.
So, does anyone have any thoughts on what could be wrong?
