Dear Zoya,
I am not convinced that insect/spider venom or some other
toxic principal caused these symptoms. More likely, I would
consider some type of spinal cord damage related to a
herniated disc or potentionally some other spinal cord
problem. Some elderly dogs have severe arthritis that mimic
these symptoms also. Please see your local veterinarian to
diagnosis and treat this problem, and rule-out any other
causes such as fracture (broken bone) or gun-shot.
