    Hi :welcome

    Sorry to hear about your dog attack. Keep her warm, quiet and isolated. A dog crate is good for this. Shock can be a killer as much as any injuries. If she wishes to sleep that's fine as long as she is quiet.

    Good luck with her :fl

    Once she has settled and hopefully got over the shock you can give her a better look over for any injuries. Keeping her warm, settled and quiet is the priority right now.

    Okay thanks Now I will be worry free except she is not eating which is common for a shock. I do make her drink water and I try to give her favorite which is lettuce.
