Something weird happens to my Chihuahua, she seems like in shock.

Hello there,

I would like to ask about something that happens to my 4 years old Chihuahua.

Occasionally something strange happens to her, suddenly it seems as if her legs were contracted and she can't walk, specially the front legs gets like paralyzed or something, she gets all shaky and scared (me too obviously). The episode lasts a few minutes and then it goes away and she continues as if nothing had happened.

In the 2 years that she has been with me I've seen her like that about 3 or 4 times, so it doesn't happen often but it worries me.

I appreciate any help you could provide me about it.

I'd video it and then show it to her vet. It sounds like a spinal problem, maybe a slipped disc, or pinched nerve, it could also be neurological, but whatever it is you really need to have it checked out by the vet.
