I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. Caddy's having trouble getting up is an important symptom but it's not pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of any one disorder. For example, she may be generally weak due to a systemic disorder, she may be anemic, she may be painful in her joints - hips, spine, e.g., or she may have hurt herself - sprain, strain, or bruise. Has Caddy's behavior persisted? Is she now lame? Has a swelling(s) appeared anywhere?
