I know that I am not suppose to ask emergency questions, but it is Sunday and I can't find any other help. My 84 year old father has an old overweight dachund. The last two days her hind end has become increasingly paralyzed. I know there is nothing I can do right now, but if anyone knows what might be wrong with her and how to make her more comfortable I would sure appreciate it. Thank you. Noi

You need to get your dog to an emergency Vet clinic with a neurologist ASAP ~ paralysis in dachsunds is a critical situation.

I agree. Daschunds are very prone to back and disc problems. She needs to see a vet right away. Good luck and keep us posted. :fingerscr :goodvibes:
