Just an update. I am pretty sure that the problem was/is illiopsoas strain. Since April I have been giving Jazz regular stretching and no games involving hard stops and turns and she seems to be pain free. She plays hard with other dogs, races up and down stairs, leaps through long grass and can stretch her hind legs right out behind her until her feet turn over! No further need for any pain killers which is great. I'm not crowing too much as like any weakness it only takes one wrong move to aggravate the injury again, but this is a much better situation than I feared. She is free to do anything she likes voluntarily and was even climbing straight up a bamboo clump because there might have been a rat up there, and that wouldn't have been possible for her 6 months ago. All up I'm really happy and thankyou all for your input when I was getting no where with my vet.
