Q. My dog is hurt they have told us he has a hurniated disc we are keeping him in the crate as the doctor says . He is not feeling his legs in the back.

A. He could be experiencing either paresis or paralysis. Paresis dogs still have some function in the limbs, paralysis dogs can move the limb at all.. Paralysis can be reversible as long as there are signs of a deep pain response. If your pet can feel deep pain then it may help to look for places that do acupuncture or pulse laser therapy. These can be pretty affordable and can help dogs recover form spinal injury.
