Good Morning and welcome to Just answer. I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
The most likely cause for this pain is either a partial ruoptureof the Anteriotr Cruciate Ligament or a congenital luxation of the patela or knee cap. For these injuries, it is best to give Mollie aspirin at 5 mg per pound every 12 hrs and keep her as immobile as possible so this can heal.
It would be good to have your vet examine Mollie to be sure she does not have this congenital subluxation of the patella since this could require surgery if it does not improve.
