Try a little bit of gentle ''physio'' with him - gently massage his back and legs and move his little legs in and out, stretch them and bend them. Another thing to try is to fill your bath with warm water and lower him in - he should do the ''swimming action'' which is very good exercise.
What type of dog is he and whereabouts are you - I would love to help. Oh, gosh - my heart is too soft when it comes to animals!!!

no injury or something like that. He''s my baby and we are 24hours a day together. No children around. From yesterday there is a little movement in his legs but still can''t stand on his own. At this stage we give him Antirobe aquadrops and Prednisilone and also deworm him again.

Alet, is it at all possible that your puppy was kicked at any stage? This could happen when children are running around and puppy gets in the way accidently. Or, God forbid, can be done purposely. If this has happened he will, with love, care and gentleness hopefully heal again.
Perhaps he should also be on anti-inflammatories. Vets are pricey but maybe another opinion would help. This little creature is too young to be having these problems out of the blue.
