Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
As active as these little ones can get, Lucy did probably injure or bruise something on her mouth or near the nerve suoply. This causes inflammation in this area which in turn causes this lack of function. the best thing you can do to help Lucy past this is to give her aspirin at 5 mg per pound every 12 hrs for 5-7 days being sure she has a full stomach when thsi is given. This will reduce the inflammation that is causing this and ease her discomfort. In a few days, your sweet Lucy should be back to her old self.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.
