Welcome. I'm Dr. Bruce and I've been a small animal veterinarian for over 12 years. Thank you for your question. I'm sorry to hear about this little girl's fall. Is she acting otherwise normal at this time. Is she walking and playing?

Yess she seems fine
That is good Karina that she is acting otherwise normal at this time and walking / playing well. In cases of falls like this, the biggest problems are usually fractures / leg injuries that are very obvious right away. If she was limping or not bearing weight on a leg, then the possibility of a more serious injury would be a lot more. With playing well and biting and chewing on everything, then it would seem that all should be good with her situation. The chance of an internal injury or brain injury at this time out would be very, very unlikely with how she's acting.

I know it is scary to see one so little take this fall and thoughts immediately go to worst case scenarios, but I would feel very good with her situation at this time. I would try to keep her quiet for the night and let her rest. I would continue to feed her as you normally do.

The big things to watch for to indicate any thing more serious would be weakness, collapse, seizures, limping / non-weight bearing, and breathing harder than normal. I would be very, very surprised if anything serious came about from this.

I want to help as much as I can. I know this has taken a little time to get through. Please let me know if any further questions have been created by this. I'm hoping that she does well!
