hi- my boy is 15/15 and his back legs are like jello, get a 2 opionion from a vet because it could be early arthritis. get a cbc blood test and ask vet if u should start dog on a glousamine/chrontrin pill. this way it will give the dog extra strength, go easy on walks. good luck.

Without a more broad spectrum description it would be impossible to even suggest a diagnosis...what led up to this condition, is he still eating, drinking, urinating, and having normal bowel movements. Lhasa can suffer from back problems particularly when they are longer in body type. Poisoning can create paralytic symptoms as can a severe reaction to a prescription medication. Even kidney failure can cause some paralysis type symptoms though not usually entire body paralysis.
