Dog ate chocolate?

Swollen hip.

Species: Dog
Breed: yellow lab
Age: 2-5 years
I am so worried about my dog Holly. I think she may have hip dysplasia. Her hip is swollen, and its hard foe her to get up or walk now. She doesn't eat and she sleeps a lot. She also shakes sometimes. What can we do to make her pain free or at least comfortable? Also, sien't there any vet help for people who can't afford the visit? Pleasew let me know what u think asap, thank you.
