Just recently (within the last 24 hours) our dog keeps yelping (crying) when he has to get up. Initially I thought he might have stepped on something so I checked his paws. But didn’t find anything. I then noticed he very uncomfortable when I was petting near his hind legs.

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 and age?

Name is ***** ***** he is 4 years ild

Veterinarian's Assistant: How old is Gunny?

4 years old
