What is a stimulator?
Did you get a diagnosis? Has she been xrayed?
If she has something structurally wrong - such as a slipped dsk - the treatment would be different than if it was arthritis or some other degenerative condition.
But if the medication isn't working, she definitely needs to see the vet again. Just knowing that it isn't helping her will give the vet a clue.

I agree with Badger and would either take her back to the vet or get a second opinion asap. Good luck and keep us posted.

dog back pain

a stimulater is a little electric(battery) probe that you hold in different possitions on her back to get the nurves to fire again. at first we thought it was nurve damage from her yearly shots. since all this started about 2 days after them. i am calling the animal hospital in columbia missouri today to get some advise and poss take her up there

You absolutely have to take your dog back to a vet. If there is a disc problem the medication will just mask the symptoms - or not even do that, your dog could just paralyze. I don't know your dog's breed, but if a Dachshund, don't hesitate, get to vet fast.
