    My girl is about 6 weeks old and has a bloated back end. she kind of feels like a squishy ball. I looked up some info on the forum and soaked her butt in warm water and gently forced her to drink. I cleaned out her vent and it didn't seem pasty. She is not moving. I have her in the sun hoping it will give here some energy.

    Is there any hope for her?????

    Any help and suggestions greatly accepted!!!

    Try a search here for the keywords "drain" and "abdomen" and see if you can find the appropriate symptoms that would require you to drain her. There will be instructions too. I've never done it - just have seen it discussed. [​IMG]
