Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you 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, but can you tell me:

What is her temperature?

Are her inner eyelids/gums pink or pale/white?

Does she seem painful anywhere?

Any voluntary movement in her legs?

Does she look to have a distended abdomen/belly?

Any access to toxins (ie chemicals, fertilizers, plants, etc)?

Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count her breaths for 10 seconds + multiply by 6)?
