My 5 years old hen "CHICA" who has one eye a one valid leg was chased by my neighbor's dog 3 days ago and ran under the house. She seemed ok at first but a day later she was lethargic barely standing on her one leg and dropping her head and closing her one eye to sleep. I gave her some papaya and one raw egg and she ate. Drank water as well and eventually laid one egg that day. Next day she seemed worse and didn't want to eat and barely drank so I took her to the vet. She found large bruises on her chest and said that otherwise she sounded fine with a good heart and breathing. So she diagnosed that she get beat up during her escape and traumatized and gave her one week of NSAID Med: meloxicam 0.2 ml per day. I kept her in my bed last night and around 2 AM she did a watery greenish poop and appeared more alert. At 4 AM I put her back in her coop so she won't wake up surrounded by my three cats. Today she is still so sleepy: dropping her head and closing her eye. And refuses to eat. I gave her her medication and a bit of water: 3 mini gulps... Maybe two beaks of papaya and one of baby food formula... Now I don't know what to do! Leave her alone so she doesn't stress more and just give her water every two hours or should I try to force feed her??? Thank you for your help! She is my sweet little girl!!!
