I have a 9yr old pomeranian. She loves to run, I usually let her run around the park and walk everyday for an hour and a half. I was walking her recently and she starting limping on her front right leg. Then her back right leg went and she couldn't get up. Her right eye was a bit droopy and tongue hanging out. I held her, and it soon passed and she was normal again. I walked her again cautiously and she was fine. Then it happened a second time. I thought it might be heat stroke (it was a warm day) so I wet her down and she recovered. It happened again today. I only walked her for 15 mins and it was cool. I haven't taken her to the vet because it often costs a lot of money for little result. I would pay anything if it would help her, but I don't want to put her through testing as I feel they may not be able to help. If I don't run her at all, she is miserable, however I don't want to do more damage.
If you have any advice, or any ideas what this might be, I would be extremely grateful.View Thread
