    i got home from school today and noticed my baby Silkie is shaking her head constantly. She also stretches her neck as if to be yawning. I ant take her to the vet until tomorrow but would like to do anything I can right now. [​IMG]

    Could be respiratory, could be crop issues (sour crop, impacted crop), could be gapeworm (not as likely). Definitely take her to the vet if it continues, especially through the night. Just provide comfort measures. Electrolytes and/or Apple cider vinegar in water, keep her warm, and make sure she eats!
