pet’s breed: Boston Terrier pet’s age: 15 monts pet’s sex: F previous treatment:
My boston is arching her back, looks like she is stretching and then dragging her hind legs behind her while crawling or pulling herself around on the bed. She seems uncomfortable - her ears are back and typically they are not. She is up to date on her shot and take the preventive flea drops once a month between shoulder blades and also heart worm. I do not live in a wooded area. I noticed this behavior tonight - prior to that she seemed fine
As first examine blood - CBC and urine. Examine urine for presence of bacteria. Make sure she’s not in estrus. Make ultrasonography of the kidneys and the bladder. Make x-rays on hip joints for hip dysplasia (this must be done by specialist). Specialist should make neurological examination.
