Last night Nilla had what we thought was a mild case of colic. She was laying down and rolling a lot. She just looked like she wasnt feeling great. We got her up and led her around for almost an hour and a half, then she pooped and had good gut sounds she started drinking and eating. So we let her back out in her little pen.
This morning I got up and went over to check on her just to be sure she was still feeling ok. Well I couldnt find her. She wasnt in her pen. I looked around and we found her in another pen with a bunch of bullies. I took her inside and walked her around a bit. It didnt take long before I thought she was sick again and didnt have hardly any gut sound. I called the vet but they couldnt get out for another hour but they wanted me to keep her moving. That was way easier said than done she layed down about 10 times and I would have to fight with her to get her back up and moving again. Once the vet finaly got there she gave her some pain meds and took some blood tests.
The blood tests came back that she has a severe infection her white blood cell count was 60,000. The vet said that could be a huge reason why she is so under weight. So she is now on two antibiotics. Hopfully she pulls through and the meds work but the vet also said there is a small chance that they wont help.
