Hello,my name is***** and I will help you.

So she is walking OK? No wobbling or moving sideways?

Can she walk up a low step?

she is wheezing when she breaths and doesn't come to me unless I put her on her legs
Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 8 months ago.

She may have some chest or lung damage. I recommend that you have your vet check her for internal injuries.

Watch for worsening of the breathing, vomiting or loss of mobility. Those would indicate more serious problems and I would not wait until tomorrow. If your vet is not available go to an emergency clinic.

I talked to a vet and he said if she is walking ok just watch her and she should be ok
Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 8 months ago.

But did you tell him about the wheezing?

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 8 months ago.

I would agree if wasn't for the wheezing which could mean a chest or lung injury.

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 8 months ago.
