Thanks for getting back to me so promptly. I understand how hard this must be for you, as your love and attachment to your Donkey is very evident, and seeing her in this condition must be heartbreaking.
Yes, the blood from her tongue could very well be from getting her into a sitting position (which was a wise thing for you to do), but I doubt that it has anything to do with the problem to go down in the first place. The longer she stays down, the more difficult it will be for her to recover, from whatever it is that is occurring.
I will say, initially, that if she hasn’t been seen by a Vet yet, that that would be the first order of business, especially since she has been down for so long. I will help you as much as I can, however, in attempting to figure out a cause and what to do. So as promised, some questions for you:
1): Were there any difficulties with the birth?
2): Is she current on her vaccines, and if so, what has she been vaccinated against?
3): When was she last de-wormed, and which product did you use?
4): Is she eating, urinating and defecating normally?
5): Can she move her legs, and if so, does she attempt to get up?
6): If she isn’t able to move her legs, I’d like you to do something for me: go out to her, and with a semi-sharp object, such as a key, apply firm pressure with the tip of the key against her lower hind legs. Press fairly firmly, enough to cause some minor pain, and see if she feels it and responds. You can try this in several areas.
7): If possible, try to get her rectal temperature with a digital thermometer, and let me know what it is. A normal temperature for a donkey is around 100-101 F.
Thanks, ***** *****’ll be looking for your reply.
