My Dog Can’t Use His Hind Legs….Help!

schweizer-sennenhund-108590_640It’s a very helpless feeling to watch your dog not be able to walk on his hind legs. There are many reasons why this could happen including injury, arthritis, old age or even unknown causes.

Many older dogs can’t use their back legs because of some type degenerative disease. Taking them to a vet should be the first priority when this happens.

So many dogs who are otherwise in good health are unfortunately put down because of their lack of mobility. That’s so sad because there are options for a dog owner to consider.
