She is to the point now that she can wag it some again but now she is very stiff in one of her hips and whimpers when she gets up after laying down for a couple of hours .

    After a bath 2 wks ago our female lab/begal mix shook herself off very hard and the next day her tail hung down & she couldn't move it. She is to the point now that she can wag it some again but now she is very stiff in one of her hips and whimpers when she gets up after laying down for a couple of hours . Had her to the vet and did the xrays and blood work and we are still waiting for the last of the test results. Last night I did find a tender spot on her hip. We also found a large hornet's nest in a tree. Could she have been attached? The vet said that this is not related to her condition. Any one with some other ideas. She is getting worse every day.
