Jack can't move back legs
by: James

Sorry to hear about your little Charlie. Is he able to move his legs after a bit? If so, then it could be arthritis. Your Jack is getting up there in years - it could also be hip displaysia where the back legs are very sore. But it could also be a pinched nerve or a ruptured disc. If you pinch his back legs and he doesn't move them then it could be back trauma. The only other thought I have is that some ticks cause temporary paralysis. But give Charlie's age it could definitely be any of the other things I mentioned. Unfortunately without seeing or knowing the background of Charlie it's hard to tell what it is. The best person is the vet.
Hope Charlie is ok!
