We actually don't know what happened to him last year but he has recovered. He was on steroids for a good couple months and slowly weaned off of them. We definitely thought the worst and were actually very close to putting him down but he slowly started to improve and eventually just started walking again. He was slow moving for a bit and then eventually has come full circle and is doing great. It was terrible, he couldn't even wag his tail. I think there were two scenarios- one was a spinal injury where there may have been some cartilage or something that came loose and was floating in his spinal cord (could have done a spinal tap, opted not to), or two, he had a stroke and his brain wasn't making the connections. We are thinking it was more a spinal injury. Good luck with your pup!
