I've got to take my beloved Staffy to the vets soon. I'm scared.
DP got up at 5:30am and found that Synyster's back legs wouldn't move. We thought it might be a dead leg so brought him into bed and let him sleep.
8am wasn't any better. He doesn't have full control. He can stand now and walk a few paces but then his legs buckle.
He's not in any pain and still eating/drinking and still slobbering me with kisses. So vet decided that we could take him to the Saturday appointment surgery so we won't get the emergency appointment price.
I'm just so scared that I'm going to lose my baby.
Poor Pup. Glad, in a way, about the fever - makes it more likely to be a 'simple' infection and less likely to be something sinister. Sounds miserable though, and still scary. Paws crossed for better in 24 hrs!
He's back to normal!! Fever came down steadily during the day and his legs started to wake up properly. A bit stiff and wobbly but he was up and about. A good night's kip seems to have done the trick as he's fighting over the favourite ball with the Doodle.
I had this with my cat a few years ago. She came in on a Sunday morning dragging her back legs. I immediately thought car accident but she had no drag marks/scuffs and we took her to the vet. Couldnt find anything wrong except temperature, but they kept her in gave IV fluids and antibiotics and she was fine the next day.
