A friend of mine has a 1 year old male shih tzu, who is all of a sudden not walking, it started on his left back leg, and now to his right...is there any way he might have hip displasia? What does she need to do until she can get him to the vet? Thanks!

Intervertebral Disk Disease?

ETA-if that is what it is the sooner she gets him in the better. One of the techs where I take my dogs had a dog with it and he's moving around now.

Definitely needs to go to an e-vet or the vet on call at her normal clinic.

ETAA: http://www.petplace.com/dogs/intervertebral-disc-disease-cervical-area/page1.aspx found a decent article about IVD(D)

IMOM may be open for business starting Monday, but they could contact them now. http://www.imom.org ALso care credit http://www.carecredit.com

Sorry I can't offer any advice other than what everyone else has said. He needs to see a vet ASAP. I hope that Rajah is okay. Please keep us posted.

Update....My Friend's dog, has started walking again, they live in Canada, and she was unable to get the dog into the vet, it being Sunday and all, so she is going to get up early in the morning and get him in tomorrow morning. Thanks for the help and concern!
