Update on what's wrong with my pup

Just like was suggested here, the vet thought it could either be anal glands or sprained tail. When the vet tried lifting her tail and my pup yelped, she concluded that she had sprained her tail. (She did express her glands to rule that out). How she sprained her tail, I have no idea. She is usually very happy and wags her tail often, perhaps she whacked it on something?
Anyway we have some pain reliever for her and she's feeling much better already. Just have to try to keep her calm
Thank you PT vets!

I thought that was probably it. My dog seems to do this every few months, and I usually don't know how she did it. I'm glad she's better!

My guess is that won’t be the last time she sprains her tail. I hope she feels better soon.
