    Poor poppet! [​IMG]
    If there are puncture marks it might be worth applying some antiseptic cream, so she doesn't develop an infection. Hope she pulls through! [​IMG]

    Aww, I am so sorry! I hope she pulls through!

    In the meantime, you can try flushing the puncture wounds out with warm water and packing them with neosporin (Without the pain reliever)
    If signs of infection start to show, you can run up to TSC and get her some anitbiotic (Duramycin)
    Electrolytes will also help. (Try BounceBack- also found at TSC)

    I am from Michigan as well- the Lapeer area.
