All the vet did was a blood test? What about any x-rays? How did the physical exam go? Did the vet mention pain meds at all? I dunno, I might wanna take my dog to a different vet for another opinion if all this one could come up with was to "see if he pulls through".

A second, third, or fourth opinion is needed, as many until you get an answer. This should not happen in a young dog.
Check for ticks to make sure it isn't tick paralysis.

he might have a blockage. did he ingest something? Or maybe bloat. I agree take him to another vet asap. You can't wait on stuff like this. good luck. PLS keep us posted
