    Not sure as only managed a quick call due to work. Just rang the vets for an update and sheís no worse but still cold. Sheís taken 20ml of recovery food. I hope sheíll be ok

    Thanks for the messages everyone.

    I don't know if this helps at all, but quite a while back I had to take Fudgie to the emergency vet as she was going into gut stasis. They gave her metaclop and pain relief, and I syringe fed her during the night. She was getting worse rather than better so I took her back early the next morning. On the second examination there were no gut sounds, despite the gut stimulant and syringe feeds, and her temperature had dropped significantly. I was convinced she wasn't going to recover.

    They kept her in all day and overnight and after several hours in an incubator they managed to get her temperature back up and kick started her gut. She went on to make a full, albeit slow, recovery.

    I just thought I'd tell you that to give you hope that it can be turned round, although I know it's impossible not to worry when they have to be admitted. I would also be encouraged by the fact she's taking the syringe feeds well.

    Sending lots of vibes for Snowy, I hope you get a more positive update from the vet this evening.xx

    Thank you. That sounds very similar to Snowy. Sheís just looks so weak and ill, more than usual and sheís not resisting anything just sitting so still. Iím so worried Iím going to lose her
