    I don't know what it is, but am posting so you bump up. Looks like she definately need oral antibiotics.
    Can you get a better pic of her feet?

    What happens when she tries to eat? Does the food actually make it down or is it coming back out? Same question for water.
    If you can, get a better pic of the foot.

    Bad breathe makes me think coryza. Do a search for it and see if that's what it is. Good luck!

    First thing I would try is to massage her throat where that big lump is, if it's pus or whatever, see if you can get it out, that may make it easier for her to breathe
