    Hold her mouth open and when she calms down from u hold her mouth open take some medical glue and put it on the cracked area and it should heal it

    Any certain way to hold her head? Me and my boyfriend took turns trying earlier but were afraid of injuring her further and any ideas on food that she could possibly eat? I bought crumbles for her but she won't eat that
