Winston is a 10 year old Male White German Shepherd Dog. He started to have mobility problems earlier this year in the form of bilateral hip and stifle osteoarthritis. In mid-August he became acutely paraplegic. After 24 hours a degree of left hind function had recovered but he continued to be monoplegic in the right hind. Poor core stability and his concurrent degenerative joint disease lead to inability to recruit his hind limbs into a functional gait pattern.  His owner had invested in a hind limb cart and had started to take him out in this.
