    I sprinkle it on the treats when I feed them.

    Hmmm? Well I'm a very simple person with simple replies. ;)
    I'm thinking it has a neurological issue and will die. Possibly you can prolong its life with support but in the end it's going to pass...Sadly all don't make it. Proper feed at a balanced nutrition is key...

    I can't upload
    I think I finally got the video to upload. It isn't long but it shows her breathing hard. When I picked her up her heart was beating so fast!

    Maybe? Nope guess not! I can't get it to work. It is only 4 seconds long. She is just like the picture shows but she is breathing kinda hard.

    I think you uploaded the picture again.
    I would use my own judgment. If you think it's an actual seizure than it probably is.
    I hate to hear that!
    I guess some are born with neurological problems.
    I would be afraid it might be a contagious virus.
    Without a trip to the vet you might not know.
    It also could be a vitamin deficiency.
    I am sending prayers to your sweet baby and tou!

    I’d at least try to help her. I’d go to TSC and pick up some liquid b complex and start her on it at 1 ml per day over a tasty treat so she gets. A full dose. Sometimes even with the best feed they can still have a deficiency. It isn’t an expensive treatment and to me worth trying since there is always a possibility it can help. It’s in the cattle dept and it says injectable but just pull off the foil and suck up a ml and add to her treat. D52CC4AD-0B80-49A5-87ED-1022C3EBFE62.jpeg

    Thank you! I double checked but it won't let me upload the video. It just turns it into a picture. :(
