Can you "sit" her in the tub or kitchen sink? When Hannah injured her back, I sat her in the tub and stood in there with her while bathing her. At least she felt better. I dried her by having her lay on her side on the counter while I brushed.

Sit in the tub with her. This way, you can use your legs, knees to help stabilize her.

Can you use a dry shampoo for the time being? I would just hate if she slipped even a little in a bath with her back issues.

I would not bathe her in a tub. There are many dry shampoos you can use, or even wipe her with a facecloth and nicely scented dog spray. Even if you stay with her in the tub, it is alot of blowdrying, etc and extra movement.
