Hi, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and I'm happy to help. Please stand by while I have a chance to type.

I’m so sorry that your companion has you worried today. Can you share a few photos of what you’re seeing to our chat?

These are certainly some substantial wounds. I would strongly recommend that Eva see a vet today for care. She's likely to require surgery to address these wounds, as well as antibiotics and pain management. I am concerned that she could have an injured spine if she cannot stand up properly and she's in pain. I would urge you to head right in for medical care. If you need help finding a vet that can see you, I can help but I will need your location.
