Hip Problems?

by Donna
(Winter Park FL)

My Aussie is having trouble with his hind legs. When laying down he gets up and holding left rear up. Could it be that he has hip problems? I am taking him to the Vet, but I feel so bad for him. What can help? I am so strapped for money and I want to be able to help him.
