    Hi
    Tuttu 4 year old showed a lack of appetite for a few days and followed by difficulty in coordination and movement of hind legs. The vet here was not very helpful and only said that this usually occurs at older ages. I suspect it's degenerative myelopathy. What should I do?

    Hi Bhavithry, welcome to the forum.

    There are many different causes of the symptoms you describe and only a qualified vet with access to Tuttu can make an accurate diagnosis.

    Your best bet is to go back to your vet with a comprehensive list of questions, or to seek another veterinary opinion.

    Do come back and let us know how you get on, we hope Tuttu recovers.
