Hi Marie Vos
You need to see a Vet A.S.A.P. This is defined as an EMERGENCY. The longer you wait the more severe the problem may become as the intravertebral disc is most likely going to cause permanent damage to the spinal nerves.
The vet will most likely give you the following options:
1) MRI/CT and Spinal Surgery.
2) Treat Medically - maybe not an option in this case.
3) Eventual Euthanasia - the dog may become urinary and faecal incontinent
4) Purchase a dog cart.
