My dogs has a back hip injury. I'm about 95% positive its from my 3 year old stepping on it by accident pretty hard. The next day she didn't want to walk although she could and didn't eat. Its been 4 days now with improvement and she is eating fine and walking around without any noticeable issues (no limp). She is still having some problems however. She wanted me to throw a stick for her and not thinking I did. She let out a small yelp on the first bound and stopped running; same happens climbing stairs if she tries to speed up she lets out small yelp and slows down. I'm currently thinking I'll restrict her activity and see how it goes. Lots of rest and no kid play. My gut tells me it's just a sprain but I'd like someone else's opinion... She is a 6 yr old husky malamute cross about 85 lbs if that makes a difference. THANKS!
