My 15 year old spaniel has muscular degeneration in his hind

Customer Question

My 15 year old spaniel has muscular degeneration in his hind legs and is just beginning to weaken in the front, and has muscle wastage making him very thin although he is still eating. Recently he has started to drool badly from one side of his mouth, he has never been a drooler before. Could this be connected?

Also, when was the last time he had gone under anesthesia for teeth cleaning or teeth extraction?
