Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
I would worry that Brooklyn may be suffering from hips dysplasia or arthritis in her hips that is causing her to lose the nerve supply to her limbs. This is not associated with a bowel blockage since the symptoms are very different. If Brooklyn is still eating, give her aspirin at 5 mg per pound every 12 hrs to decrease the inflammation that may be causing this and discourage her form playing or running. Take her to your vet Monday morning for xrays to determine the actual cause for this. This condition may have been present since birth but she may have moved the wrong way and aggravated this condition causing these symptoms. This is not serious but may require repair if this is the problem.Does that make sense to you?
