the same sort of think happened to my moms lab he went very quiet and would always just lie around and not wanna do anything.

and when he went out he would run round like a puppy but would get really tired.

i would suggest taking him to vets to get him checked over for piece of mind more than anything.

they may do blood tests and stuff

At that age, it doesn't take long for arthritis to set in, especially since his spine is where the injury is located. Bo didn't have problems at all until two years ago when the vet removed a fatty tumor from around his bum hole. Just the way they laid him out during the operation allowed the arthritis in his hips the opportunity to become problematic for him......

Will your vet take payments? It's definitely worth having checked out. Canines are experts at hiding pain and it sounds like he is IMO.

Best of luck and saying a prayer for Bings....
