My dog is 8 years old and is having trouble climbing the stairs and trying to sit down.

I can tell that there is something wrong with her rear right leg.

See your Vet ASAP. With a diagnosis we would be happy to make suggestions, in addition to any the Vet makes, to make her life better.

Possibly arthritis or hip displaysia, most likely arthritis. Or maybe she sprained her leg.

I agree to go see a vet. If it is joint problems, I have had real good luck with the greenies for joint care. It really helped my old guy out. It is not a cure all, but it did seem to help him have less problems getting up in the morning and getting around. I hope it turns out to be something small and your dog is back to normal soon.
