Customer Question

My dog does not want me to touch her along her back hips. It seems to hurt her. In the las day or so she has even started a hopping or jumping of sorts when she is in a sitting position. She yelps when this happens so I am concerned. She will be turning a year old the end of this month and I am concerned.

My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that your puppy is in pain. What breed is she? How much does she weigh?

Is she having any difficulty getting up and down? Any fever? Have you given her any pain medications? Is she spayed? Vaccines?

Please let me know the answers to these questions so that I can help you and her this evening.

Best regards,

Dr. Amanda
