Default Dog with hip problems

So our dog just went to the vet for some rear end problems, and she underwent a somewhat unpleasant procedure on her butt. Her pain relief should have been instant, but we got her home and she’s really lethargic. Doesn’t want to get up and walk around. Won’t step up on the bed. She’ll dang neat take your hand off if you run your hand down her back when it makes it to her tail area.

We’re really starting to suspect she’s having hip issues. This pain came on ver suddenly too, so we’re Taking her back in tomorrow for an x-ray. She’s 9 years old or so. What should we expect if she’s having hip displaysia issues? Is 9 years old too old for surgery?

She just had a procedure done and is still under the influence of drugs to keep her under.....she is confused in pain and has noc what the fuk is going on and why....ease up....labs are prone to hip issues....
Give her space and comfort....plenty of water...after surgery they get thirsty....pee will smell awfully too...

I'll get you some links to look up for help via diet and other means

Could just be residual pain from the procedure or intramuscular injections . My little guy acted the same way after his last series of shots . By all means get the hips checked , but the sudden onset might point more towards lingering effects of treatment . Hope for the best !

Well, her procedure was cleaning out her anal glands. Yeah, gross....

She wasn’t under any anesthesia, so it’s not related to that unfortunately.
