My poor black lab Maizy is having a very hard time walking. She walks sideways, can't get up the stairs, jump up on my bed, or chase a tennis ball. I know that hip problems are a huge issue with labs- but it shouldn't be starting at four years old! And it literally happened over a three day period. She is going into the vet tonight to get checked out. Please send prayers our way! They would be much appreciated. I will keep the thread updated when I find out her diagnosis.
