I have a labador retriever that is 14 years old she is

Customer Question

I have a labador retriever that is 14 years old she is having trouble putting weight om her hips. She is not able to walk. She has had this problem for some time. Our vet gave her pretazone and it helped. But the symptons are returning and our vet won't give her pretazone again because its been over a year since shes been to the vet they suggested 1 adult asprin 2 times a day. We can't get her to the vet because she can't go up and down stairs. And we're in our 70's. We are trying to contact a mobile vet. But I wanted to know if there is anything we can do for her until she can be seen by the vet. She really seems to be in a lot of pain.
Thankyou
