Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
How long has she been down?
Does she look bloated?
Are her gums pink or pale/white?
Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count her breaths for 10 seconds + multiply that by 6)?
Any nasal or eye based discharges? What color?
Can she eat or drink?

You are very welcome,
I am just going to post this wee reply, so I can be alerted when you next update me (if I do not do so, the website makes it hard to see when you do).
Speak to you in a wee bit,
Dr. B.
