    tender on back and around hip area.

    Hi All Sorry if this has been posted before im just worried about Conan. This has been going on for a couple days, rang vet she said to give him a couple more days then take him in if it hasn't improved.

    The other day i was patting Conan and giving him a tickle, when i reached the top of his tail/Back area, he yelped. i then monitored him walking around with no worries, struts around with tail in air, cocks his leg to pee and poos with no probs at all, just when I give him a slight n I mean slight tap around that area he yelps and muscle shakes.

    Thank you in advanced

    Tony

    Hhe been running/junping/goofing around in an extra crazy way previously? Get him x-rayed at the vet to be sure it's no the start of hip dysplasia...

    I would probably take him just to be safe. My rottie is pretty stoic and doesn't let me know he is in pain. Your boy is actively telling you he is in pain. It could be a simple muscle tweek, something could be wrong with anal glands making him tinder, if he isn't neutered could be his prostate, or early signs of hip dysplasia. Hope it clears up and nothing to serious.
