    Welcome to BYC.

    Can you post some photos of her, position that she is laying down, one of her hocks, feet and legs?
    How was she injured?
    Do you mean that she hasn't walked in two months?
    What type of food/treats do you feed?
    What do her hocks look like - any swelling,oozing joints, discoloration/bruising, etc.?
    What about the feet - paralyzed, curled, do they work at all?

    Any previous symptoms of respiratory illness - coughing, sneezing, mucous from the nose, runny eyes, etc.?
