Customer Question
Our barn kitten was...

Our barn kitten was gone for about 2 days. I found her in our dog house this morning and she can’t move. She is very limp. I have started getting a little movement from her paws and she can lift her head.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the kitten. What is the kitten's name?

Blackie

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Blackie?

No she was fine until she went missing for a few days.

I'm so sorry your question wasn't responded to sooner, I just came online and saw your post.

How is Blackie doing now? Any improvement from a few hours ago?
