Inflamed belly and rear legs like allergic reaction no bumps present, no enlarged stomach but can't walk and rear leg held up and shaky. What could this be?

Can you clarify for me what you're seeing, please? Is it her skin that's inflamed (erythematous/reddened) or are her legs swollen (edematous), instead? Does "can't walk" imply that she's paretic (weak), paralyzed, or reluctant to do so?
