Dogs that are dragging their back legs are usually suffering from a form of paralysis, which is related to the nervous system, the muscular system and the spinal system. Dogs that are dragging their back legs should be brought to their veterinarian immediately because if the problem is not addressed quickly, the dog can become fully paralyzed.
