Dog in pain!

Hello. I have a 10 pound pekingnese mix. Tonight I noticed that he was walking funny. He had his butt a bit lower to the ground when he walked. I went to go check him out, and found that when I try to lift his tail, he screeches out in pain, and gets really aggressive with me. I gave him a muscle relaxer and a pain med, but I don’t know what could be wrong with him. Please help! I don’t wanna take him to the vet if he doesn’t particularly need it (I’m assuming he will though) also, for the past two weeks, every time he gets up, he limps on the right leg. The limping last for about 10 minutes, and then he stops. Could these things be linked together?

It is instinct for an animal to hide pain and injuries. Dogs will try to hide any pain right up until it's impossible for them to continue to do so. The longer you wait the more it can end up costing both of you. Our pets rely on us to keep them safe and healthy and happy. He's "screeching". That's not just a mild thing. He needs to be seen.

Yes, you should bring him to the vet. Dogs really have these abilities to hide what they feel especially when they are in pain. Try these Oils it is good in reducing pain and inflammation.

Definitely get him to a Vet. It could be as minor as an impacted anal gland, or possibly a more serious spinal injury, or ??????. You need a Vet to diagnose and get a treatment plan underway, including some pain relief.
