Today my husky was coming down from her designated couch she always lays on and she let out a loud cry or a yelp. I definitely sounded like she was in pain. I noticed that she stopped climbing on my bed recently a well. I took her out for a walk and I seemed like everything was normal her stool is normal and has been. Urination is normal, apatite hasn't changed. I really don't know what it is. Im Taking her in 100% but I need to post as well. I can't seem to attach a video my sister took of her when she cried out but she let out a yelp as she was coming down kind of in a hind leg or hip extension

She could have pulled something. I would massage and do some easy stretches with her checking for points of continued pain and any drop in range of motion. If it's been giving her trouble for a few days with limping it would be worth making sure she didn't tear something.

Let the vet check her out. In the meantime, a gentle massage or having her sit in a warm bath if she will, might ease her discomfort a bit.

Sorry to hear that your pup is in pain. I agree with the vet route. I’ve had my guy sprain his leg, and they were able to give him some non-steroidal anti-inflammatory that really eased his discomfort. I’ve learned that over the counter human anti-inflammatory is not good to do, so you need the vet to give you a prescription.

So I haven't had the chance to get the exray because its gonna cost me 1000$ I'll be getting it this week. After preliminary testing Vet said that it's not her hips, it's her mid to lower lumbar. I checked for bruising and lumps but didn't find anything. Any ideas? Any feedback back would be greatly appreciated!

Is this the same girl you rescued in 2012 - that'd make her about 7-8 now?

$1000 for an X-ray is insane. Around here it's around $100. You might price check that with another vet. It is possible that she may have herniated a disk jumping down off something. @jbealer I believe used to take her dog Sierra to a chiropractor occasionally but can't remember what all she was being taken for. She might just be out of place. Dogs get out of whack the same as us humans. You would want to be sure it wasn't a herniated disk though before you let a chiro work on her. If the pain comes and goes in flare up type situations you could be dealing with the early onset of degenerative disk issues but again, you would need those X-rays. The X-rays are really the best place to start if she's still having issues. That price though. I would really shop around. I know things are higher in Cali but that seems insanely so.

Yep Sierra got more work then me! our vet does acupuncture and chrio treatments, but i have also taken her to my chrio at times as he was better. they have this plunger type of tool they click on the back/spine/bones to adjust stuff, used on old people and babies as well. we also took her for therapy work, water treadmill and massage work. I did not want to use pain meds on her with her age, all the therapy treatments worked well for her. Jack has also done acupuncture when he has pulled muscles. our vet also does laser treatments and Sierra had that as well for recovery.

is she on any joint supplements?

Xrays will not show muscle stuff if she did pull something.

That price for X-rays is insane. Mishka had X-rays done at an emergency vet and it cost $200, which I already thought was a lot, lol. They sedated her though too, but sedation wasn't in that price. I'm in California as well. Only thing I can think of for a price that high is it will be a series of X-rays but even then, that price seems pretty outrageous, is this her regular vet?
