7 years old, unspayed pekepoo/chihuahua mix dog, weighs 20-25 pounds. She is a bit overweight.

Started out with her back legs paralyzed, unable to control her pee or poop.

Yesterday she lost use of her front legs as well. And they're sticking out straight in front of her, stiff. She can feel the front.
Has no feeling in the back.

Shows no pain. Eats like normal. Had fun when I tickled her front paws.

I thought disc so I put her on crate rest and gave her steroid.

I can't get to the vet yet... has anyone heard of this happening?

Also, her urine is a darker color, strong in smell. Did I not express the bladder enough?

I'm truly lost, freaking out, very stressed out for Molly.

You NEED to get her to a vet right away. Some things can be treated at home, this really isn't one of them.

Molly

She has an appointment in the morning.

Good thing though, she was playing earlier. So good sign. Hopefully he can
help her.

Dark urine can be a sign or kidney issues.

Honestly, it sounds like her body is shutting down in some way. As in death. She needs to be at a vet right now. Not tomorrow morning. This is not something that can even wait for 5min, in my mind.

I took Molly in to see her vet.

Surprisingly, it was pyometra. Which confused me because I didn't read anywhere that it could cause paralysis.

He said she was too weak for surgery and started her on an antibiotic in the hopes of building her up. It did not work. Molly passed away.

It wouldn't have happened had she been spayed.

I got her when she older... I feared(edit) the spay surgery would kill her. Turns out now that's the very thing that would have saved her.

Oh my goodness... I'm so sorry :(

Rest easy, sweet Molly
