Millie is improving! Her vitals are normal and although she still can't stand she's sitting up and can wiggle her paws a little, so we're keeping our fingers crossed for continued improvement.
They ruled out botulism and are pretty sure its a tick born neurotoxin. They pulled an engorged tick off of her yesterday when she arrived at the emergency vet. She was even up to date on her Frontline.
So, if your dog shows signs of loss of muscle strength in back legs - check for ticks. All it took was removing it, there isn't any medication for this.
Thanks again for your well wishes!
