I hope she continues to feel better. I am sure she is a wonderful dog. Mastiffs are the best doggies.

It's very encouraging to hear that she is getting a little better...even if it's slow, it's going in the right direction.

Is your girl doing better today?
I had a rottweiler that had a similar experience - in fact 2 times over the course of her life. She just couldn't get up, had no use of her hind parts. The first time was before she came to us and the second time she was boarding at the vets while we were out of town. They did everything and couldn't get her up for almost 2 days. The vet said she was too big a dog to live with partial paralysis, but we were not willing to give up so easily. We got a dog sling and got her up a little at a time - which won't be easy with a mastiff. Our girl seemed grateful to be able to do her business away from here bed. We gave her tons of love and encouragement, gradual lengthened the walks and after about 2 weeks she was walking again - was probably a month before she could walk more than a quarter mile at time. She was also on meds for pain ( Tramadol) and arthritis (not Rymadil - I can't think of the name right now), as well as Cosaquin. She was about 8 when that happened and lived another 2 years before passing away of something else entirely.
So good luck and hang in there!

She is doing so much better today!! She's still having mobility problems in that foot but is not in pain. She is getting up and walking around!!! I'm so relieved right now I could cry.

It really, really is such good news! She's still not sleeping on her bed - she wants to be in her crate or, if she comes to the bedroom, the floor. I'm guessing it eases her symptoms or maybe it's easier for her to stand up.
Her back foot is still... delayed.

It could be aging/Arthritis. When our Large breed dog was about 8 we added a daily glucocimin supplement to help his joints stay limber and got a prescription for Rimadryl on days that he over did it and needed a pain reliever. When he turned 10.5 he needed Rimadryl daily until he died close to his 12th birthday. Also when he was 8 we stopped all really dangerous joint activities like fetch and frisbee and replaced with walking and swimming. Your baby is well into middle age and our larger breed dogs may need extra tlc and supplement boosts to keep their joints healthy and avoiding injuries which it sounds like your guy might have. I am convinced we got an extra two or three years of life with our dog by simply making adjustments to a senior dog citizen lifestyle. Good luck!

No, it's not arhtiritis. I've seen arthritis in dogs and this isn't it. Arthritis can be pain, stiffness, slowness - but not paralysis or sudden onset.

She's continuing to improve in terms of the pain. She still has some paralysis and slowness in her hind leg.

Sounds like maybe he had a small stroke.

I hadn't thought about a stroke... it is possible. I haven't seen strokes cause pain... but maybe it wasn't pain she was feeling, but being "out of sorts?"

Daily update: She is acting like she is in zero pain (yay). Still having trouble with her foot. No longer dragging her toes, but it seems... delayed.


She is eating and drinking and pottying normally. I think she was having some trouble evacuating her bowels, and had to clean up her rear. Her anal glands have been leaking (she has had problems with her anal glands). That smell...

(((hurts and doggie))) just saw this thread and am happy to see there have been some improvements. I hope she continues to improve and not decline. Your dog is understandably important to you and I can understand why its causing you so much pain as well.

My mom's Dane had a stroke and she acted like that too.

Her paralysis improved each day and is barely noticable now.

Her vet gave her Vicodin to keep incase it happens again (which it has).
