My husband just got back with some fortified B complex. Getting ready to give a shot
Thanks but I'm about 3 hrs away
I did get a hold of one a few minutes ago that is an hour from us. He advised us to do everything y'all have.
Thanks for the link! I learned a lot from reading it.
Thank you for the link. I do not know if she is choking since I have seen her drink?
I have 2 nannies that sometimes when eating they will act crazy and throw their head back and spit up white slimey stuff a time or two , then go back to eating. I watch them for a while and they don’t do it anymore, I let them be and finish eating.
Stay on the thiamine/vitamin b every 4 hours, even overnight. I’d do the penicillin with it too. I had a listeriosis doe last year and it was tons of treatment but she pulled through.
We did the shots through the night. This morning we got a call from one of the vets that we could bring her in. We just dropped her off and waiting to hear back.
She is having fewer episodes but seems to be tired. Still let's the kids nurse, drinks water, but doesn't eat anything.
Everyone's advice has been great.
You may want to make a alfalfa pellet slurry for her and slowly drench it.
Praying there’s a great outcome for you! ((Hugs)) I know it’s got to be scary. Thanks for the update.
I heard from the vet earlier.
He said that she had polio but was already recovering, probably thanks to the fact that she had been receiving vitamin B shots already (thanks to all of you again!). In fact they only seen her have one seizure and said it was pretty mild compared to what I had described.
She also was fighting an infection, probably from birthing.
They said she even ate quite a bit!
I can pick her up tomorrow with instructions on her continued care
Awesome! Good job!
That’s fantastic news! Yay!
Good to hear.
Glad we helped.
She's home and is definitely feeling more lively. While she was eating though I thought it looked like she was having problems chewing. Maybe her jaw aches from the teeth grinding and clenching from the seizures?
She may have sprained her jaw or even broken a tooth while seizing. Try soft hay and a warm mash of alfalfa pellets soaked in water and shredded beet pulp. Soak it all and see if she will eat (slurp) it.
Glad she is doing better. Keep up the meds until at least 24 hours after she has no symptoms.
Can she swallow, if not, you will have to tube feed her.
Sometimes paralysis from polio or listeria causes her not to swallow.
So be careful.
If she can’t swallow naturally, she may get the drench into her lungs.
If she can swallow, she can be slowly drenched with food.
