    Hi,
    I have noticed today that one of my blue, 15 week old silkies is a little unsteady on her legs. She's eating normally as far as i can see, she has no lesions on her legs, her eyes are normal, and the other silkie is fine. I bought them about a month ago and were in quarantine for 3 weeks, and on a course of Tylan for the first week, under vets instructions. Please, if anyone can give me any advice i would appreciate it. It's been a very hot day and wondered whether it could be heatstroke? Droppings look normal, I would say that she appears to be sleepy.
