    That is not the case of being lazy...I think something is definitely wrong here!

    Reluctance to stand on hind legs is a tell-tale sign of hip problems. I wouldn't wait to take your bully to an orthopedic specialist. Also, they usually do their own x-rays because many, many times, the x-rays done by regular vets are not performed correctly to show what they are looking for (there is a special technique PennHIP x-ray) so they retake them to show the hips in the exact position they are looking for, as well as expertly manipulate each hip to determine laxity.

    Prayers for Frankie! Looks like hip problems to me...but best to get the ortho to diagnose since he/she will be able to tell what can be done with exercise, supplements, therapy, etc...

    SHe is so cute! I hope she is able to use her legs soon!

    Hang in there...poor girl. On the bright side, her scooting around is a testament to a bulldog's resilience! They WILL find a way and are a very hearty lot when it comes to these things.

    I watched the video, and I'm no expert.......but hip dysplasia shouldn't make him drag like that. I had a Chow Chow with hip dysplasia about 10 years ago. He was lame on his rear end, but no dragging. I had surgery done for him where they actually removed the ball part of his leg that fits into the hip socket ( not sure of the technical terms). the surgery worked well and he recovered great. An ortho vet will know what to do. The dragging looks more neurological.

    I'm not familiar w/hip issues, but just wanted you to know that I hope Frankie feels better soon! I agree w/everyone above, take him to an ortho specialist.

    Is there any other Orthos that you can take her to? I'm so sorry this is going on with her, this video breaks my heart. She's a sweetie.

    I just posted on other thread.... Have the ortho check her spine too, Banks has issue which causes her to drag her back legs at times, but we keep it under control with meds and laser therapy.

    It seems to me like there is more going on with her than just hip displasia.
