I sounds like the mother silky might have a tracheal (windpipe) injury. It is probably bruised or it may be punctured.
Give me her weight and I'll see if we can dose her with something you might have available. But remember you'll have to open her mouth and get her to swallow.
Please send me your phone number
It is probably fluid in her trachea. To have fluid in her lungs would mean an injury like broken ribs or a crushing injury enough to bruise her lungs. I can't see her son doing that if he is a small silky.
I mean her daughter.
Of course you are concerned Shirley. But I think that she will continue to improve each day. There is probably some swelling present and it will go down. Her daughter must be a hellion to do that to her Momma.
Let me know how she is in the morning.
You'll sleep better tonight.
Shirley, I'm glad to hear that she is better each day.
Try giving her some milk. A little every half hour or so. Make sure that it is room temp.
Talk to your vet and ask for some liquid antibiotics. Not pills which are hard to swallow. Since she can drink water, she can swallow liquid medication.
I'll email you tomorrow.
Please let me know how she is doing. I hope that by now she is doing much better.
I wish you a Happy New Year!
i did not request a rating. But please do this because even though you already paid for the service, I will not get paid until you rate me.
Good morning Shirley,
Please let me know how she is doing.
