My dog Ivy appears to have pain from her hind end. She is

My dog Ivy appears to have pain from her hind end. She is slow to get up and once she does, she won't walk and takes a long time to lay down. Her stomach doesn't appear to be distended and she lets me put a little pressure on it, so I'm inclined to think it's her back legs.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help Ivy. How old is Ivy?Customer: I took her to the vet and she seemed to do a little better once he gave her a shot of buprenorphine but she seems to be hurting again. She's 3JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Ivy?JA: OK. Got it.

My 7 year old female Dachshund has started to not be able to

My 7 year old female Dachshund has started to not be able to lift her right front paw completely sometimes and has her paw knuckle under. She's wobbly also when standing often. She has been on a pain killer, steroid and muscle relaxer for about 2 months+ since jumping down to a hard surface from our bed. The vet diagnosed a back injury (either bulging or ruptured disc) as she was in obvious discomfort holding her head down, arching her back and unable to get comfortable. We have ruled out nay back surgery so he Rx'd the meds and we have restricted her movements some (not letting her jump from anything, nor climb stairs coming inside after potty breaks).JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dachshund's name?Customer: GertiJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Gertie?Customer: nope, that pretty well covers it. trying to decide best course of action for her comfort and quality of life, not ours.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

My 9 year old female staffordshire terrier began Adequan

My 9 year old female staffordshire bull terrier began Adequan shots this past Wednesday, and I gave her a second one yesterday. She has osteoarthritis in her right elbow joint that upon x-ray examination, has osteophytes, which my Vet said is causing her additional extreme pain. She is on Deramaxx, Dasuquin, Fish oil, turmeric, and another supplement. She also is on a Hills diet, Metabolic /mobility. In addition, I have been giving her 2 Tramadol, three times a day. Her pain level is still pretty high and she cannot put weight on the leg without crying. She has been on Gabapentin before when she had spondylosis in 2013 but didn't have a good reaction ( ataxia) when the Vet suggested I try it again last month. I made a sling to help her so she can go to the bathroom. Any thoughts?
