    I injected her with penicillin and now she is limping. Last time I injected her with it she didn't limp. So I must've injected her in a wrong spot?
    Will she be better?

    Here is a picture of her leg it's not standing like the other one and sometimes she puts it up.
    Is she in pain? If she is can I give her a little aspirin?
    by the way the purple stuff is an antibacterial spray.

    See I dont know where to inject her at. I all know is not to hit a vein. I remember giving her the shot around the feather. I felt hard to me.

    I gave her boiled eggs and she liked it. Since egg has protein maybe it will help some.
    Hopefully she's better in the morning:(
