Default thigh muscle pain

My mini schnauzer has
exercised with me all of her 6
yrs of life and is very
muscular. Recently, after a
long walk/jog she was very
sore in her thigh muscles and
I suspected lactic acid
reaction. I rested her for a
week, massaged the muscles
every few hours, then started
slow, short (1 mi) walks. She
is eager, trots out in front
but the muscle soreness and
some cramping returns.

Three questions:
How long should I rest her
before she can return to
joining me on walks/jogs?
What might I do to assure a
comfortable re-entry program
for her?
What could I do for her
current sore muscles? epson
salts, massage, ice, or what?

Teach me please,

Nicki and Charm dog

1) How do you know it's in the thighs? 2) if she's still
sore a few days later it's not "lactic acid," but possibly
an overuse injury or something else 3) if she's cramping I'd
consider a chemical/dietary/hydration problem. To the vet,
to the vet, to the vet, vet, vet.
