Her temp is 102 and going down. She has just had a normal bowel movement. I believe a guest stepped on her foot and injured her. Extremely sensitive to the touch. She has started to walk on it but with a limp. She is eating and drinking. Starting to move around a bit more. Vet has not been availablevto see her.
