2 year old pitt...

2 year old pitt bull seems to be hurting in front legs. No injuries have been noticed but she whimpers and crys when getting up and down. Now wanting to sleep all the time

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name?

Lucy

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Lucy?

Weight about 95 lbs. Has been spayed

Started 2 days ago. Thought she may have done it getting off of golf cart

In a young dog with pain in multiple legs and lethargy, tick-borne illness is a possibility. Is Lucy on tick prevention? Have you ever seen ticks on her?
