Help me please

Post by nik naks » Wed Jul 25, 2007 8:21 pm

I think Charlie has had a choking fit on a piece of bread, she can wash herself still but her breathing is ragged and bunged up, sucking sides. I dont want to lose her not when she's so close to friends again. She keeps trying to stay close to me as though to make her better. :cry:
Going to vets tomorrow but what can i do till then.

Help me someone :cry:

ETA she's just weed and pooed.

Oh no :( can you see anything lodged in her throat? maybe you can get her to drink a bit to loosen whatever is lodged... I don't know really, sorry I can't help. Sending lots of healing vibes your way :hearts: :hearts: :hearts:

Is it safe to syringe though? The last thing i want to do is make it worse :-? She just licked a bit of water off my finger, still side sucking.

Sorry for the delay, the computer crashed completely last thursday and i was unable to get online till now :(
Charlie was happily stuffing her face the next day and still is. :lol: Her breathing was back to normal the next morning aswell and showing no signs of what happened the night before. Im not even going to risk giving her bread again :-?
