How long did it take for the swelling and subcutaneous emphysema to show up? I'm assuming your vet is aware of all this. What did they say about this? Is she still eating and drinking?
I'm sorry but I'm not set up to field a call at this time. If you want that, I can opt out to let another assist you.
I opened up for another expert to help out.
It all depends on who's available. I can't see who else is on line at this time. If no one helps here in the next 10 minutes, I'll try to help out through the chat side. Ok?
I can keep conversing here as that will get more information out there for hopefully the next expert to read. So your vet is aware of the swelling and the air under the skin? Did it happen immediately? What did they say would happen? Did they start any therapy?
That is absolutely the best thing here to do! They will want to see her and see where she's at with her situation. A physical exam is ultimately the best thing to do. I'm going to be honest here and say that jugular (neck draws) for blood samples is done all the time and I've never seen anything like what you're seeing. I'm hoping for the best for her.
