Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
Is your girl on any medications currently?Any history of illness or injury?
Her symptoms are suggestive of her being sore after a walk and she may simply be stoic about pain. The wincing that you observed is a pretty clear sign. At her age, this could be in any area including the neck, forelimbs, spine, hips, lower rear limbs and even the tail. I would recommend having her examined and talking to your vet about starting her on canine-safe NSAIDs. Your vet may wind up recommending x-rays to see if there are any abnormalities that cannot be seen from the outside. Now would also be a good time to start a glucosamine supplement, as well.
