Hi this is my first post here.
I have a gorgeous female boxer named JellyBean. She is 2.5yo
Today she is very stiff and sore and lethargic. She sleeps ALOT and resembles an old lady trying to walk.
Her mouth seems swollen and she cant really open her mouth to eat. I have been hand feeding her small amounts. She cant seem to bite her food, only takes it into her mouth and swallows it down.
She cant put her head down to get to her water either so have had to fill a larger taller water container so she can drink easier (hasnt wanted to drink since mid afternoon)
She looks really sad and her tail is tucked between her legs all the time. Even when she is getting her love and wags her tail it is still mostly tucked.
She came off heat about 2 weeks ago but her vulva is still quite swollen (I have no idea if this is related)
I was fostering a rescue pup for a few days and he was often jumping on her.
Sorry this is a rambling post but I just popped it down as it came to mind....
Does anyone have any idea or similar experiences with their babies?
If she hasnt improved tomorow I will take her to the vet.
