Possibly. I still think it looked like pinched nerve/ back pain.. but am happy for Kerri to get as many ideas as she can from people. Hopefully it never reoccurs, but if it does.. Dekka does a lot of flying high leaps and other 'stupid' stuff with lack of concern for her well being..

Looked like a myotome issue between L1-L4 possibly as both back legs were affected equally as well as her tail. Being so stoic, I massaged her back for a while and down both hips.. Possible feeling of a little heat in her lower back, but she's still got her mohawk, it's cold out.. and she's so stoic she could lose a limb and I don't think she'd flinch..

When Smudge sees the chiro, if it's been a 'bad' month where he's been reckless.. you can tell, sensitive parts of his back he flinches at. Dekka would never tell you..

Hoping it's just a back issue that some chiropractic can clear up. Strider has seizures, though they're under control now thanks to Mordy and her awesome nutritionist awesomeness.

It sounds exactly like one of Strider's seizures. During his last cluster he even lost control of his rear. I was terrified it wasn't going to come back, but it did. It also seemed to affect his vision during and for a few days afterward.

The halos they experience before/during/and after an episode can make them act really wonky. Strider gets really frightened and defensive and acts very out of character when it happens (thank goodness he's been seizure free for months now though)

Thanks for the ideas. Dekka seems normal today.. well as normal as my little dog gets. I am still trying to keep her quiet, not jump excessively, carried her down the stairs etc. I am taking her with me today when I go out and about to do things just in case...

please please look into seizures. with the head injury recently and all , the exhaustion was the telling sign for me in the story , i know human seizures and dog ones are diffrent , but caleb can talk to you during a partial seizure , you will know something is wrong but you can lead him around before he goes into a full grand mal. the rigid limbs and rhythmic and exhaustion , scream neuro.

The head injury wasn't recent though. It was about a year ago I think now. Will definitely be keeping a very close eye on her.

Vibes from us too~ reads like a seizure. but it is hard to tell without seeing what happened. Scary

Vibes that it was a one time incident, and she's ok!

These guys are insanely stoic it makes it hard to judge pain for sure..

If she does it again, really try to get it on video! That will be a big help to the vet.

Fingers crossed it was a once and done thing.
