I have a fawn that just yesterday started losing the backend function. She can use her front legs but not the back ones. Anyone ever have this happen is so what did you treat with?

Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like claustridia Harry, I had two doe fawns do that last year and acted quickly enough to save them. Talk to Robbie as she has been extremely helpful to me with my obscure health issues. Her number is 713-545-0955. You wouldn't happen to have any does over there to make burgers with next time I come out? lol... let me know because if not I'll bring some along.

Cervid: taxidermy
Could be white muscle disease, give her 2cc Bo-SE immediately, she may just need some selenium, then give her some more in a few days. Worth a try

More than likely this is due to an injury of some kind. Could have been stompped or hit frnce and injured spine. I would administer dex.
