My 14 year old female Staffie is loosing control of her legs?

Post by tkscotland on Mon Jan 02 2017, 19:11

I reckon it must be age related...Corrie our beautiful Staffie has always been healthy but has recently been collapsing on out laminate flooring..she's absolutely fine when she's outside walking....

Worth getting a vet opinion but my Flo has also started to struggle on laminate or smooth flooring. She's ok as long as she doesn't turn too fast but does seem to have lost grip.

Welcome to the forum by the way Big Grin

I must agree with Ian, Katy's friend is a 9yr old setter that now hates laminate flooring as she slips on it often Sad

The laminate flooring is not good even for a lively young staff with the lack of grip and traction,they can so easily slip and pull a muscle or even dislocate something.

I'd definitely pop into the vet for a quick check, and maybe get a rug or something to cover the floor.

yes, a vet trip would be best.

probably, she's getting a little less sure of herself on slippy floors & so she panics? best to get her checked, though.
