My dog is excessively licking her lips. She is very lethargic and doesn't want to move and her breathing is very rapid.

Ate ate her food this morning but refuses to drink.
She was fine this morning and then she was limping on her back leg (maybe due to her hip dysplasia) and laid down and wouldn't move.

She went to have blood tests at the vets earlier and they came back as normal, and was just given paracetamol for the pain.
She is 9 year old Labrador retriever.

Does anyone have any ideas of what might be wrong with her

The main thing is that she's been assessed by your vet - so I wouldn't worry too much. Has she managed to eat something she shouldn't have? Was something left lying around?

If she's got a current painful hip dysplasia then she's going to be lethargic and not wanting to move around - I wouldn't worry too much about it. Just try to make her comfortable. When was the last time she drunk anything?

it could be a stroke or something. maybe you should take her to another vet? tbh 9 is pretty old for large breeds, so it could be a lot of things. it could also be dm (degenerative myelopathy ) if she's really struggling with her back legs.
