Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

Did her labored breathing subside? Or any congestion?

What is her rectal temperature?

Is it only the neck that is stiff now? Is she throwing it back towards her back?
