I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please google the keywords "veterinary, emergency, (your area)", to find a facility for Lexie. Please keep Lexie as quiet as possible in case she has hurt her spine. Until you have had her attended to, you can administer aspirin at a dose of 20 mg/kg with food. Please give me an update on Lexie.
