Cannot put pressure on back hind leg

by Deb Linacre

My 2 year old female Shih Tzu cannot jump up to greet me or jump on the couch or bed. When I hold her two front paws up to try and make her lean on my knees she will put her right back leg down fine but will not put her left foot on the floor. I am wondering whether she has tried to jump on the couch when I have not been there and fell awkwardly. Do I need to take her the vet, she does not seem to be in pain, just sad :-( Thank you.
