Lots of medium to large dogs have hip troubles, in particular, hip dysplasia. If you can't get your pup to the vet now, pick up some glucosimine and start giving some of that every day to help provide some relief until you can find out what's going on.

I've got arthritis in my hips, and the glucosamine does help. They give me two of them a day, and after a few weeks I was feeling better. It sure is rough getting old.
