We have a 9 week old border collie x blue heeler who has become progressively worse in the past 24 hours. Her hind legs sometimes collapse when she walks and she lifts the right one and occasionally will fall to the right.
She has been in the vets overnight and they did full bloods which were fine and also an X-ray of her spine but again nothing. So now meningitis is their number one suspicion.
However she doesn't have a temperature, has no loss of appetite, no vomitting, no head tilt or obvious neck or head pain. She does however keep constantly biting her feet and rubbing her nose with her front paws as if she is really itchy and this has also only been the past 48 hours so I can't help thinking the 2 are connected somehow.
She's been vaccinated, wormed and had tick and flea treatment. She is now home and we are monitoring her until Monday and have to take her to a neuro specialist but in the meantime I wondered if anyone had any ideas what it could be or ever had anything similar. It's so upsetting seeing her so lethargic, sleepy and whiny and not knowing how we can help.
