After a walk yesterday and a bath, which I have to wrestle

Customer Question

After a walk yesterday and a bath, which I have to wrestle with her during (she doesn't like bath), she has been walking slow and won't attempt to jump up. She looks like she is in pain, but doesn't yelp when I gently press over her body. Did i maybe hurt her during bath? Should I take her to the vet?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: I will now
JA: What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: actually when I picked her, mainly holding her in the front behind her legs she did yelp a little and now she' wants to barely move. I'm really worried
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?
Customer: she's a smaller dog 11 years old, usually very spunky and happy
