Her back legs work and she doesnt appear to be in any pain.... She will literally drag herself to the food bowls or potty box.
Much of what you describe, especially the "dragging" makes me concerned about a possible neurologic issue. Could you ask your veterinarian about that? A simple neurologic examination can be done in a room and can be charged as part of the examination fee. This would change a lot it that were the case.
