Still having pain, but I'm not sure of what the problem is. She seems to be OK walking around the yard sniffing around - no limp at all. Her tail wags and looks OK. She looks somewhat uncomfortable to sit then lie down, but when she does, she seems to relax OK, but she cries when she gets up from a rest. She cries when the other dogs brush up against her tail. She cries when she goes up steps, reluctant to go up unless I go by her side. She will not jump up on the bed or couch. When she tries to run (after a squirrel) she cries and stops with tail curled in a perfect semicircle out and downward, hair in her back stands up. I had her to the vet today; he said pain going up steps can be a sign of a disc problem. She cried only when he moved her right leg...possibly hip problem. Recommended total rest for a few weeks. Xrays if there is no improvement. Prayers for Judy are appreciated.
