Hello,

I am sorry to hear you are worried about Sora. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

How long has she been like this, unable to walk and difficulty breathing?

By "fever return" do you mean she had a fever previously and it has come back?

If you check her gums, are they pink in color, or do they seem pale?

I am very worried about a dog that can walk and is having difficulty breathing. She could be having pain, and if she can't walk, the pain may be from a bulging disc in her neck or her spine. Other possible causes could be heart disease, or blood clots. This breed is prone to heart disease, so that and her spinal cord would be the first thing to check her for.

Can she eat and drink? Let me know how she is doing and what else I can answer or help with.
