Sudden Onset Rear Weakness And Drooling

by David

Our 4 Year old Aussie, Mojo became ill over last 2 days. Seemed like a gastric thing, off food, vomit occasional clear and frothy fluid.

Took to vet and now he is very sick with constant drooling, weak, cannot stand & wets himself. Vet looking into a spine problem.

Blood work fine, IV fluids and antibiotics but he seems to be so ill.

What could be wrong with my beautiful Boy?

Best of luck.
