Why is my shih tzu walking crooked after a haircut?

I took my 2 shih tzu to get groomed. When we pick them up they wher ok. On Sunday 1of them started acting strange but we thought it was because we had alot of company. On Monday he seemed to be in alot of pain and not wanting to stand up. We took him to the vet to get his anal glands expressed. On Tuesday we noticed the pain had increased and he did not want to set down and when he did it was to the side. Now when we take him outside to use it he is in so much and spins around chasing his tail. When he walks he was crooked and he is in alot of pain. He went back to the vet 2 more times this week. I need help thanks.

the vet didn't find anything wrong? if your shihtzu tail was shaved & cut really close this can upset them greatly.

they don't like air on their backsides,give him lots of cuddles if this is the case & it should last about 2 weeks. went through the same thing with mine, now I tell the groomer to stay away from his tail
