Toy Aussie Cannot Sit Up Or Stand

by Heather

My Toy Aussie is 13 weeks old and has been a happy active puppy. On Saturday morning he was walking around squatting like he was constipated and when I got home he was falling over so I rushed him to the emergency vet. They thought maybe it was toxicity, put him on antibiotics and I took him home. Sunday he was better but still not 100%. Wednesday morning however, he was awful and I rushed him back in. This vet thought either shunts or something neurological. The tests for shunts came back negative. They said they cannot do anything there that I cannot do at home and that he needs to see a specialists and have a CT scan which I called and it is $2000 (not to mention any other tests, surgery, and if he will even live).

He is home and just lays here as he can't get up and he wants to play and is barking however, I am at the point do I put him down because I am a college student and just bought my own place so it is not only emotionally but, financially hard on me. He has some antibiotics left and I want to see what he acts like within the next couple of days but, it just breaks my heart seeing him just lay here and fall over when I take him to the bathroom! Has anyone gone through this?
