    Hi! One of my sickies, who is doing better, but still has bubbly-breathing, has Green GOO in her choanal slit! I know that can't be a good thing. She is already taking antibiotics. How can I clear the slit without damaging the delicate structure? Or should I do so? I very much want to raise her comfort level, and getting this cleared seems a good step in that direction.

    Advice is welcome!

    Thanks,
    Patience

    I would take her to the vet.

    Yes. No doubt that would be best. I can't possibly, however, for a number of reasons, financial (no money) and logistical (kid took the truck) among the most difficult.
