It sounds like shes gaping and adjusting the body temp - puffing the beard is normal as wellI can’t really tell if her balance is improving. She’s still wobbly, so she still has some sort of issue. She did come out yesterday and walk/wobble around the room. And her beard isn’t black any more. However, she does still gape her mouth and puff out her beard periodically- I can’t figure out what that means. The one good thing about it is it allows me to drip water on her tongue, put food in her mouth, and give her the serrapeptase. She won’t eat something if you offer it in front of her though.
I called the vet, and she said we could get her another x ray from a different position to see if a disc was slipped or something like that. But it sounded like if that happened, there’s not much they can do? I guess I’m just not sure how much time it’s supposed to take for her to heal before we figure out if this is permanent. Or to tell if she’s still in a lot of pain.
I do have a question about the serrapeptase- is it better to give her smaller doses more frequently throughout the day or the one full dose once a day?
Thank you for monitoring her!
