She's a bloodhound and we went tracking yesterday... I had to correct her path while in the harness...

And she seems to be sore and stove up today... She is yelping intermittently.

Hello and thank you for using this site to help you. I am sorry your question was not picked up sooner.

Because she was in work mode and you had to redirect her path, also given her age, she may have a soft tissue injury. But with this breed of course they are prone to intervertebral disc disease , where the soft cushioning in the disc turns hard and presses on the nerve. This would be detected by a myelogram.

What I would do for now, is keep her cage rested, going out for potty reasons only, and give her some aspirin for pain (providing she is not on any other medication). IF this is a disc problem or a soft tissue, then aspirin will help with inflammation. Give with food.

I am going to direct you to a link on dosing this per the dog's body weight. Hopefully she will be feeling better in a couple of days.

Be sure to use plain aspirin and nothing that contains tylenol type product or Ibuprofen type products as those are toxic to the dog.
