Good Afternoon and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

I am so sorry to hear about Boo's condition...I know it is hard to see her in distress. The only thing you can do is to continue to get her up even if it is painful to get her strength back. If she is older than 8 weeks, aspirin can be given to decrease pain at 5 mg per pound every 12 hrs as long as she is eating. For now, supportive care will be crucial to survival.

Does that make sense to you?

Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.
Sincerely, ***** *****
