• My dog is acting a little strange. Whenever I try to pick her up she yelps. I’m not sure what could be causing this. She has been going to the dog park a lot. Maybe sore muscles

    Hi Samantha,
    I recommend that you take her into see a veterinarian. The yelping can be a sign of pain or discomfort which can have many causes. These can include sore muscles but could also be caused by an injury, back pain, or even abdominal pain. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of the yelping and the treatment that she needs after they have examined her.
