We just had to put out 5 yr old boy down. He was the best little dog and will be missed so much. It was the saddest thing ever. He didn't understand what had happened. We still have his mother and she is doing well.

Re: Our Dachshund's rear legs are paralyzed almost overnight
My sweet boy Joey is going thru the EXACT same thing. In the morning he acted a bit drunk, by the evening he was dragging his back legs, not able to pee or poop on his own. He still eats and drinks and doesn't whimper or cry like hes in pain. This is so painful to see my best buddy like this. I don't mind helping him relieve himself, and am trying no t to listen to those who say " you just need to put him down".
I was wondering what advise you may be able to give me as far as treatment goes. Thank you in advance for your reply.
I wanted to thank you all for your warm and caring comments. I knew coming here with this would give us a myriad of possiblities.

Thanks for all the prays as our family is not quite the same as a dog can be like a family member.

He may have a slipped disk. Only an MRI will confirm that.
If the steroid treatment doesn<t work, he will need back surgery. The operation is done by a veteranary nueroligist and is 95% successful. As soon as he can pee on his own and wag his tail you will know that he nis on his way to full recovery. It can take several weeks after the surgey.
Don't worry. He'll be 100%. Just find a good nueroligist.yoda

We went thru this 5 years ago with one. Could not begin to afford the surgery of some $3-5000. So confined, rubbed his hind legs and manipulated his toes as often as possible. Put him on a crash diet and lost weght. took about 3 or 4 months as I recall and he started walking. Lived another year or more and never knew anything had ever been wrong with him.

We put our dog to sleep this afternoon :(

He could not walk or control his bladder (1 & 2)

It's a sad day at our house right now.

I just wanted to thank everyone again for all their cares

and vent a little.

Re: Our Dachshund's rear legs are paralyzed almost overnight
This hind leg paralysis happened to my neighbors dog. I am aware that "vaccines" cause a lot of nerve damage, thus muscles become weak etc. Sometimes death follows, but there is hope even for the vaccinated animals. I will tell you where to find the research about vaccinated animals. But first the good news about hope to get your dog on his feet again. I also found a web site with a video of a dog in the same condition and then the improvement after taking the product (I don't sell it) from a company on the web at nzymes dot com. I bought the nzymes for the neighbors dog and with their permission began giving these to the dog. He was unable to use his hind legs at all and he dragged himself around. They put him in a pen to keep his legs from being rubbed to the bone and he has since started standing on his own. He is weak still, but his strength and ability to move his hind legs is steadily getting better. These nzymes should be taken by all pets as you will learn from the web site they lack enzymes in their processed dog foods. All living things need LIVING foods. I hope you will give your pet a chance too. I also found that this condition is not limited to breed of dog. It is across the board, but the one common denominator is the vaccines. I found research on that as well that PROVES vaccines in dogs, just like in children is causing serious health issues and even death. It doesn't matter how many times the vet or doctor denies this fact, it is still fact. Remember they have to make a profit and sadly at a higher cost to us and our animals than we should be willing to pay. The internet is full of information and you should trust yourself, but not your doctor or the vaccines or drugs they prescribe. KNOW the TRUTH and then decide, don't trust your health with drug pushing doctors. Natural doctors are safer and cheaper. You can find the Vaccine Science on my web site JesusHeals dot ws

Re: Our Dachshund's rear legs are paralyzed almost overnight
So sorry, I did not read the other posts. I am sorry about your dog, but I will leave the information in case others may find it.

I love the scripture that says, ALL things come from God, through God and return to God. I think of animals as not having souls, but having the presence of God as their unconditional love is god-like in nature. Nothing has life apart from God's Word, and nothing was made was made apart from His Word. I know animals will be in heaven as the Bible speaks about the Lion and the sheep being at peace together. When I see an animal, I see God's creation and I know they have no doubt about who their creator is as there is no such thing as instinct as I know it is God Himself giving direction to his creation. He is the DNA of life. God Bless you.

Re: Our Dachshund's rear legs are paralyzed almost overnight
Metacam - Google it - good stuff - but not for long term use due to it effecting the liver in a very bad way over time - can kill pets, esp. cats, but is very good to use for emergency situations such as extreme pain or parallelization if the spine is not compromised.

Long-backed breeds often have spinal problems unfortunately.

Our Corgi woke up one morning unable to get out of her crate - she was 12 yrs old at the time.
Had to carry her outside to pee and couldn't stand up to drink, just sit - had to bring the bowl to her.

Took her to the vet expecting the worst, but after the vet gave her Metacam, she was able to walk again by afternoon and she did not have another episode of parallelization after that.

I only gave it to her a few more times [ never more than one dose once a month in winter ] over the next three years due to her severe arthritis pain along with Phycox and an injectable condroititn med.
She was humanely euthanized by our vet last July 28th at 15 yrs old, but she didn't die from the Metacam, although many pets can if used for more than 5 days in a row, but of kidney failure after having chronic kidney disease for a few years, which preceded the Metacam use.

Re: Our Dachshund's rear legs are paralyzed almost overnight
This happened to my doxie on Christmas morning 2011. Long story short, she needed an MRI followed by immediate surgery to repair a degenerated disc. Very expensive procedure but the alternative was to put her down and NO WAY would I do that to my 4 year old baby girl. It's imperative to get a dog to the vet specialist within 24 hours as the longer you wait the less likely the dog will walk again.
I got lucky as I write this we are 6 weeks from surgery and she is walking! Her back right leg seems normal but the leg is lagging. I don't know if this is permanent or not and only time will tell.
If this is your situation don't waste time. Find a vet specialist center and get the dog there a.s.a.p. for an MRI.
Good luck!

Re: Our Dachshund's rear legs are paralyzed almost overnight
In Jan. our 6 yr. old dachshund became paralized in her rear legs with no pain sensation in her back paws. Our vet gave us the options of $7,000.00 surgery, putting her down, or taking her home as a permanently disabled dog. We took her to a chiropractic veternarian and she was walking in less then 5 wks. Anyone who has a dog in this condition please do not overlook this option. This vet also happened to be homeopathic, which we never had any experience with, but she is walking, has pain sensation in both back paws,and has full bladder control.

Your dog was probably bitten by a snake. The poison worked its way to the nerves causing the paralysis. It will be a while for him to come back. I hope the best for your dog.

Re: Our Dachshund's rear legs are paralyzed almost overnight
My Dachsie had the same thing happen to him Yesterday, he was running toward the front gate when I noticed he was dragging the left leg ,took him to the Vet,was started on Steroid therapy and pain meds. The xray showed degenerative disk disease nothing acute. I try to get him to pee but he just stands there,will call the vet,to see what to do.
It is just heart breaking to see him like this,but I am very hopefull since my daughters Dachsie had the same issue,but with the Steroid therapy and crating her she is fine,very little defecit.

Re: Our Dachshund's rear legs are paralyzed almost overnight
Difficulty walking in the back legs may be due to neurological problems (most likely in your Dachshund), orthopedic problems (for example hip or knee problems), or cardiovascular problems (blood clot to the back legs as one reader replied).

Based on your description of inability to use the back legs, poop or pee, I would be most suspicious of a spinal cord injury. Possible causes of spinal cord injury include a slipped disk (or 'pinched nerve' as some previous responders call it), meningitis, spinal cord tumors (cancer), strokes (what's called a fibrocartilagenous embolism or FCE for short), trauma (such as gunshot wounds or being hit by a car), or sometimes spinal cord infections. "Tick paralysis" usually affects all four legs and not just the back ones.

Dachshunds and other 'long-back' breeds such as Shih-tzu's, Pekingese, Chihuahuas, Beagles, etc are prone to slipped disks. They tend to affect dogs between 2-7 years of age, but older and younger dogs may be affected as well.

Treatment options depend on how affected your pet is and whether surgery is an option for the pet. The most important factor is whether or not your dog can feel his or her back legs. A veterinarian should be able to assess this for you. In general, dogs that are unable to walk due to a slipped disk are usually best treated with surgery. Specialized training and advanced testing such as an MRI or CAT scan are often needed. The chances of fixing a dog that is unable to walk, but CAN feel their back legs is about 95% with surgery and about 50-60% with rest and medications. Strict crate rest is important. If your dog can NOT feel the back legs (as determined by a vet), the chances are not quite as good. More information about conservative management can be found at www.dodgerslist.com

So sorry. No how you feel

Re: Our Dachshund's rear legs are paralyzed almost overnight
has anyone ever experience this before with their dog.

He cannot walk pee, poop or move around at all.

We were at the vets until 2am last night and they gave him a steroid IV treatment but he doesn't seem to be improving at all.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I had exactly the same thing with my little dog, who's a cross-Dachsund. He had a slipped disk which was pressing down on the spine. He had an operation to have the disk removed and the spine stabilised. That was eight years ago - he's been perfectly well ever since, runs around (but can't jump up very well). Don't listen to vets if they tell you to have the dog put down, that just means they're not capable of doing the operation, which not all vets can do.

Re: Our Dachshund's rear legs are paralyzed almost overnight
My dog is a yorkie terrior and her rear legs are paralyzed overnight at first she was just hopping on one of her legs then later last night she was dragging both of her legs around. but she isnt acting like shes in any pain at all. If she was in pain could anyone tell me how she would act? We called the vet and he said it was most likely caused from her jumping on to a hard surface like concreate.

I have seen Dachshunds with small wheels, like training wheels, affixed to their rear to mitigate this condition.

Hello. I've added a video of my little doggy, Mitsi. As you can see, she could not use her hind legs. We consulted a Dr. Rademeyer at the Booysens SPCA and she suggested accupuncture. I was very sceptical, but we tried it nevertheless. After 6 sessions over 6 weeks, she started walking! Now she runs around like crazy. After three years, it happened again overnight. We took her back to the SPCA and after just one session, she walked again and now, 6 months later she still runs around.

Re: Our Dachshund's rear legs are paralyzed almost overnight
Hi. I'm very sorry to read about your littly doggy. I live in South Africa and our Mitsi became paralized overnight as well (See the YOUTUBE). After endless sleeping nights and research on the internet, I thought the only thing to do was to make a harness with wheels. Then my wife took her to our local SPCA and a doctor there suggested acupuncture. I was very sceptical, but we went for it nevertheless. We took her for acupunctue once a week for 6 weeks. After 6 weeks, she started walking with difficulty, but soon she was running around like crazy!
About 3 years later, it happened again and once again she couldn't walk. We immediately took her back to the SPCA and after just one treatment she is walking and running again. It's about 6 months now and she's still OK. She just can't jump onto the bed etc. She is about 11 years old.
We also have to keep her to a strict diet.
Hope this information is helpful.

It is the breed. I have several friends with dashounds. It is a disk issue that must be dealt with ASAP. Get to the vet. Surgery is needed sometimes. But it will get Worse if not treated when it first shows up. Get to the vet. Most vets will take payments.

Get to the vet.
