Hello, this is Dr Linda, a UK based vet.

I'm so sorry this has happened.

To clarify, this is an online advice service and not a vet clinic.

If you send me your postcode, I can find your nearest emergency vet for you to bring her to.

It is unlikely a vet will perform a home visit as

1) Most are unable to due to the pandemic

2) She likely needs intervention such as fluids and oxygen, which are not easily administered at home.

Take care.
