When she walks will she walk up stairs and is she hesitant to jump on furniture?
The new information about the walking the stairs, getting up shakey, shaking are all leading me to suspect some back pain. This is not uncommon. We can try some First aid to offer some relief for tonight, but I suggest a Vet visit tomorrow for an X-ray of the spine.
Please fill a tube sock with uncooked rice and tie it off. Once that is done, warm in the microwave and apply to the spine. If she is not on any pian medication, she can have 5 mgs of plain Aspirin per pound of body weight every 12-24 hours for pain with some food. This should offer some relief. Keep her crated or limit all activity other than bathroom visits. See the Vet tomorrow.
