I posted about it on another forum and a woman replied that the same thing happened to her cat and it turned out to be an inner ear infection. I could deal with that. What's the floppy foot test?
When you lift the dog's foot and place the foot toes down, the dog should automatically flip the foot to pads down. The floppier or slower the flip, the more likely the sign spinal problems. If the dog does not right their foot to pad down and tries to walk on the toes, it's called knuckling.

Some things that cause weakness in the legs:

Disc problems
Pinched nerve
Thyroid dysfunction (yup, it can cause rear leg weakness)
Tick borne diseases
