Helping A Dog In Pain?

My dog has a protruding spine. She is 5 years old and is a mixed breed. She is eating well, but screams if you touch on the spine in the middle or her hips. She also screams when she is turning while laying down. What would be best to assist her? Thank you.

How sad for you and your dog.
You do not say exactly what problem or if your pup is under a vet's care so it's difficult to offer any type of real help without knowing more. There are several things that can cause this other than an accident and most of these can be treated for pain relief even if there is no cure.

If she is seeing a vet and not getting much help then perhaps you need to find another vet.
If she is not seeing a vet and finances is one of the problems then you can ask for help from some of the many online sites that offer help with paying vet bills.
Some of these organizations are for special problems and some are for specific breeds but there are several that just offer help.
You will have to reach out to these organizations on your own but I know they do help if someone follows through with the paperwork/questions/answers.

You can also visit your local Humane Society to see if they have any suggestions on how to get financial help for your dog's problem.

First and for most , only a Vet can diagnose the pain that your fur baby is having. The back pain can be a few things like, difficult bowel movements, enlarged prostate, which could be putting pressure on the spinal cord, giving pain, or injury. Here are a few others -

When our Clarence was screaming in pain, we rushed him to the emergency vet and he needed disk surgery. Please get your pup the vet ASAP! Prayers for healing. Talk to the vet about a payment plan. Hopefully they can work with you. Post back with an update.

I've never had to use one, but I know there are vet chiropractors. Maybe your regular vet could recommend one.

Please, please, PLEASE take your dog to the vet ASAP for a diagnosis of his/her problem. It could be that the dog needs surgery or it could be something as simple as giving them a pain pill. However, you won't know exactly what the problem is until you get them to a vet! Please take them there as soon as you can. Tomorrow, if possible.
