I am hoping for some advice.
For the last month 3 yr old Maxwell has been showing occasional weakness in his front legs climbing stairs or jumping onto the couch. The first thing I thought of of course was SM and mentioned it to my husband. We decided that we should watch Maxwell and see if he improves or gets worse. It's been a month and he's neither improved nor gotten worse. Sometimes Maxwell will fly up our steep stairs (to the second floor bedrooms) like he has for years and then other times he will take the stairs one step at a time, slowly, alternating his front legs on each step. (We live in an old house and the stairs are a bit steeper than a new house's stairs.) The same thing happens with the couch....sometimes he hesitates before jumping, most of the time, he seems fine. There is never any yelping. He does not have a scratching issue, and does not seem to have any other sm symptoms.
Should I be concerned about this behavior? His annual physical is due at the end of November and he was seen by the vet through the summer for an ear infection and diarrhea & vomiting. (they know him well) I am wondering should I wait until his annual or have him seen before then??? Any advice would be so appreciated.
