Rested him the past couple of days. He was moving around good. I let him swim today. He's ouchy again, not so much when he's moving, but when he tries to get up on anything, like the bed or couch, he really hesitates and thinks about it. He'll do it, but it's not like him. I still don't know if it's his hips or back.
I'm going to talk to my vet tomorrow, (she'll be out at the house for class) and then see what we need to do.
I'm hoping this isn't the end of his performance career... but I have a sinking feeling it may be as I know his hips are not good and he is 7 years old.
Maybe a doggie chiropracter? Hope you can figure something out....
Hope you can figure something out for him
Hope he's feeling better soon.

Hope all goes well and that you get a good report from the vet.
