I'm sorry to hear of this with Lala. Yelping - a sign of pain - upon rising from a prone position is most often associated with osteoarthritis of the hips (hip dysplasia) or the cauda equina syndrome - osteoarthritic changes in the most caudal (toward the tail) segment of the spine. Lala's vet will want to perform a complete physical exam paying particular attention to Lala's hips and spine. X-rays will be recommended to better assess the health of those areas. In most cases, osteoarthritis is addressed with nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) +/- a narcotic analgesic +/- neutraceuticals such as glucosamine/chondroiton and fish oil. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

Regretfully, I don't know vets in your area but your local SPCA vets are often more cost-effective. Please continue our conversation if you wish.
