Hello I'm new to this forum and I love it. You have been really helpful in your answers about various questions on bassets. Now I have one.

My basset started dragging his hind legs yesterday. We had just walked him and had gotten home. He was fine, chased the cat before he came in the house. He slept on the couch until my husband came home for lunch and we noticed he couldn't walk. Now he just drags his hind legs, pooped and peed yesterday but not today. He doesn't seem to be in pain and still is eating good. This had to happen on the weekend when nothing is open. He still wags his tail and tries to stand but can't support his weight. Could impacted anal glands cause this? I'm scared it could be his back or hips. Thanks

Hello again Thanks for asking about Buster. We took him to the Animal Emergency Hospital after I posted the message. It is his back. The vet gave us three medications to give him and told us to keep him as still as possible. He's been a real good patient. He's a little scrapper. I don't know what is going to happen from here but we are seeing the vet again next week to see if there is any change.
