Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

Has she been like this for a week?

Can she move her limbs on the left side of her body voluntarily?

By having trouble breathing, do you mean she is wheezing, or breathing fast?
