    Hi I'm desperately in need of some help. One Sunday my dog managed to flip my avory over letting my quail loose. We found them today unfortunately 2 died one male seems fine one is moving his head to let left when he eats. Another is all puffed up but my only girl left is really sick all puffed up eyes closed wobbly when trying to walk refusing water or food do sent put up a fight when handled. Right now she is on my chest under a blanket as the boys won't huddle with her not sure what to do

    I agree with NorthFLChick. At first they were probably in shock from the attack. They need quiet and warmth . You may be able to tempt them now with mashed hard boiled eggs, cooked, warm oatmeal, plain yogurt, even watermelon if available - to get some fluid in them. Do see what the emergency folks have to say. I hope they will recover.
