Hallo Sandy
She needs to see a doctor as these are signs of hip joint disease - probably needs an x/ray. She may have fractured the hip or have severe arthritis. Be careful with anti-inflammatory medication at her age, may cause bleeding and water retention. Panado/Dolorol Forte should be safe to use if she is not allergic to any ingredients.
