    One of my girls was being a butt-head, went over a fence, and got bit on her back by a small dog. I can't find any broken skin, but she's wheezing. Any ideas?

    I would bring her in and isolate her so I could watch her. Triple check her for bites or puncture wounds. She make be all shook up or in shock right now. Put food and water in with her. Has she had any respiratory symptoms in the past? Hopefully she will calm down, but sometimes internal damage is done that we cannot see, and there can be internal bleeding.

    Turns out the little turd is fine. She eats, drinks, and breathes fine now. She must have just been in a bit of shock. She's back to her usual, bully, nasty-attitude self. I still have to keep her separate right now because she's attacking her sisters!
