Then, a few days ago, she started favoring the back left leg. No weight on it at all. Here we go.
Today's vet visit, however, involved x-rays and news that we were not expecting.
As it turns out, her knee is okay (not great). The major worry is her left hip, which apparently is extremely arthritic and has very little remaining cartilage. That explains the pain and favoring of the entire left hind leg.

|finally, she is on her back in this pic. when you compare her right and left hips, you can clearly see how the left one is completely out of alignment.|
