She is a very active dog. She is constantly chasing after a ball or going on a walk or run with one of the family members

Expert:  Dr. Peter replied 6 years ago.

If she is reluctant to jump on the couch or bed, she must have hurt something. Possible a muscle, tendon, ligament or even hurt her back or hips. I would advise you to rest her for a couple of days, no jumping or running. Give her Buffered Aspirin 5-10 mg per pound body weight every 12 hours with some food and see how she does.

 

If you have additional questions I will be glad to answer them.
