I have a 5 year old golden retriever who is my servie dog. It's happened two time's now where he's had a hard time gettng his back leg's to work to help him stand up. The first time it happened he urinated on the floor, then after I got him up and took him outside he vomited, then pooped one after another. I thought maybe he got a cramp in his back leg's, because he was ok afterward's. Then yesterday it happened again, he had a hard time trying to walk & get up. I'm so afraid he's getting that hip displaysia? I'm going to make a appt. at his vet on Mon. Just wanted to ask your advice & if you could tell me something about that hip problem. I heard golden's get that, & I'm really afraid for him.
You are doing the right thing by bringing your pet tot he vte. the vet will probably run a blood test and recommend x-rays. This could be arthritis or a metabolic disease. Good luck
