wobbly hind legs

Q Ruth asks:

7 lb. Shi Tzu, 5 years old, otherwise healthy, is refusing to walk (but will go outside for short periods). I can see her wrist and elbow joints wobbling when she walks. What can help her? Is she in pain? Thanks so much.

Q Our vet says: It certainly sounds as if it could be painful. Dogs refusing to walk usually do so because they are uncomfortable in some way. I would advise you to take your dog along to your local vet and get her examined- she might have arthritis or a similar condition. Often medication can relieve the pain and allow dogs to enjoy walks and exercise again.
