Puppy Leg Twitching

March 8th, 2008, 03:51 PM
We have a 23 week old Black lab / Border Collie mix that has a severe twitching in her Back Right Leg. When she was 16 weeks old she developed a staph infection and Ear Infection. She took antibiotics for both infections, but right after getting better from the infections we noticed the beginings of the leg twitching. The twitching has become very bad, too the point where , at times, she can't support her weight on the back leg. It is constant twitching. We have taken her to the vet and they have steered us to a neurologist as they claim to have never seen this before. Has anyone heard of this type of condition before?

I have not known anybody who has had this problem. I hope the neurologist will be able to give you an answer.

Keep us updated.
