Muscle paralysis with fever ( dog )

Hi, I have used homeopathics for the past 10 yrs. in acute cases with my pets

Question: How would you address these symptoms from a homeopathic view point? need help on what remedy picture would fit?

Took my dog into emergency yesterday for sudden fever and muscular paralysis
My vet uses homeopathics but perfers herbs & chinese medicine in his practice.
We saw some slight postive change after accupuncture- we never discussed long term prognosis

Past history-

Lobo is 6 y.o. neutered male black Belgian Shep (groed) dog.

Breeder vaccinated puppy; father-daughter breeding
I do not use allopathic drugs/vaccinations

Black lips turned pink at 2 yrs. (use steel bowls)
Food allergies even on natural raw meat with veggies and fruit
Lips itch after eating at 6months
Eating & H2O causes upset tummy (bloat) stands rocking side to side, licking lips, turning head side to side, eyes glaze to distant look (colocynth worked)
Hyper-active sensitive loyal personality
hock joints edema at 4yrs
seeks shade and coolness
