[RC] Tick Paralysis - CatThom2

This sounds exactly like what happened to my springer spaniel when I first 
moved to Florida.  I worked nights and when I got home at midnight she had 
absolutely no control of her rear end.  I palpated her and there was no pain 
and all her vitals were good.  I called the emergency vet in Tallahassee and 
they were baffled.  The next morning I took her to the local vet who said it 
was most likely tick paralysis, gave her antibiotics and within a few days she 
was fine.  I don't know if you have ticks there, but it sure sounds the same.

Good luck!
