Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hi there and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed, internship-trained veterinarian with 11 years experience in general medicine and emergency and critical care medicine and I would be happy to assist you. Please be patient as there may be slight delays in responses as I research your pet's issue.
Is she avoiding stairs or avoiding jumping up and down from furniture?
So sorry for the delay!
When was her last heat cycle? Are you able to take a rectal temperature?
Are you there?
Okay, great. I suspect that what we are dealing with here is back pain, as these are the normal symptoms of back pain and it is very common in dachshunds. How much does she weigh?
Okay. Do you have access to the human drug Tramadol? Or possibly baby aspirin?
Yes, any thermometer will work. Do you have access to Tramadol or baby aspirin?
