My dog was limping slightly, I took her to the vet and they said she may have a genetic issue with her spine. They prescribed 100mg gabapentin and 25mg rimadyl daily. As soon as she took the 1st dose, she lost function in her hind leg. Like something was broke. This was yesterday, today it is both hind legs, she is having to drag them. What could be going on? Could it be the medicine???

For the last year, when we push her a little or she jumps more than usual, her hips seems to really bother her.
