my told me that when he went to put the dogs out that our do,g a standard poodle,ella slipped and fell on her side and since then she has been limping on and off. i first thought about the last time she had been limping how i took her to the vet and the very minute we left the vets office she stopped limping and the vet couldn't find anything wrong accept her just being sore from it. so i thought this time i'd wait it out. well so i thought she seemed like she was getting better and sometimes we wouldn't limp but most of the time she is. so i'm thinking maybe this time the fall has cause her to have hip displysia (however you spell it) is this possible? i'm thinking i should make an apt now, it's been about 2 wks.

If the vet didn't find anything then it's not likely. During the exam it should have been noticed. If the vet had felt something wrong, they then would have suggest x-rays to confirm the dx. I had a Mastiff with hip dysplasia, since he was so old we just kept him on pain meds when he needed them. Your dog could have bruised something or maybe just pulled a muscle.
