Back legs are restless

Recommended Posts

So I have an 8 week old Border Collie, he's been through a lot for his first 8 weeks of life.

When we took him from these horrid breeders he was battling hundreds of ticks and fleas, an eye infection and now his back legs are growing weak.

 

I am wondering if this is normal?

We took him outside and he was walking, running, enjoying life but now he's so restless and can't stand on all four.

 

It started with a limp in his left front leg and now his front legs are fine but his back legs are weak.

 

Is this a case of something serious or is he just sore from playing and running so much?

If this were my dog I would get him to a vet asap and have him fully checked out, this doesn't sound normal.

I would go to a vet ASAP and also check every inch of the dog for ticks.

This link is about a dog that was going to be put down due to sudden failing health, then they found a tick. It was tick paralysis.
