Hi,

I just noticed that Loesje is suddenly walking in a different way. Just like she is dragging her feet or stumbling a bit.
And normally she is always on the move, but before I noticed her walking in a different way she stayed with me for a very long time.

Could this be a PT sign?

She is old and a bit on the heavier side. The suspension slowly goes in the hind legs and they end up walking on the whole of their hind feet sole rather than on their toes like when they were younger. She has an old fat lady shuffle but like agile, so I wouldn't say I see PT in this short video

Here's some pic comparisons of Shade who developed PT.

Before. Bright eyes, strong reaction to being picked up.


After, limp and loose, dull squinty eyes.

Trying to sit and eat a light treat. Not able to grasp well, stiff forelegs, hind feet splayed to support and sitting on butt rather than sitting on hind legs.


She was doing excessive bruxxing at this time.

This is clubbing of paws
