    10 year old mix of possibly blood hound, German shepherd or lab. Started limping 2 months ago. Started supplements. Now won’t out weight in it at all. Today is the first time she knuckled over and walked on it. X-rays suggested no cancer while another
    Vet was shocked they couldn’t see the cancer in the hip. I forget the exact term they used to describe bone. She hasn’t really lost appetite but does lay around all day except to eat, drink, and go out to pee/poop.
    Just noticed a yellow or pale/yellow strip about 2-3 inches on her gun (lower left if matters). I’ve read about myelopathy and thought maybe that was it but she doesn’t have more than a few symptoms of that. She had lost weight especially at hips.
