Exclamation Dog can't stand

My dog (12 year old female Siberian Husky) was fine earlier today and we had to lock her in her pen because there were people over for thanksgiving and didn't want here getting out or anything. So when i went to let her out and couldn't stand and her back legs with spreading out. I got her out onto the carpet and she could not stand up. I helped her get up and she would walk like 3 feet with her tail tucked behind her legs and then lay back down and look around like she was confused. I gave her an aspirin hoping that would help her out but it didnt seem to make a difference

If anyone know what to do please help me out. I cant stand seeing her like this

You need to contact an emergency vet right now--we're not vets here and can't help you.

Good luck with your dog!

There are a lot of things it could be and if an aspirin didn't help, then it's probably something fairly serious.

Here's a vet clinic that's open on holidays: http://www.ervetcincy.com/

If that's not close enough, google 'emergency vet in Cincinnati OH' and it'll come up with more links.

We can't help with something like this--you need to get your dog checked out.
