Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

How long has she been like this?

Is she sore anywhere in particular (ie belly, under her tail, etc)?

Any sores, wounds, lumps, or tender areas under the tail or around the rectum?

Any history of falls, slips, or injury? Any odd ingestions (ie bones, etc)?

Is she on any treatment for her arthritis?
