border collie is 11 years old, he had TPLO leg when he was 6. He was running around the pool and he seemed fine, after laying down he had trouble moving. We assumed aggravated the TPLO leg, but he’s gotten worse to the point leg paralysis

My lab had this procedure a few years ago.  When she over does the running around she’s quite stiff getting up and down for a few days.  We will restrict her exercise but she’s never been so bad that she couldn’t move.  I’m afraid he might have torn something again.  Once the tear happens, a dog will show no visible discomfort and will naturally distribute body movement to the three good legs.  I would probably have an X-ray done quickly.
