    She had a sinus infection a month ago. She was fine, about 4 days ago she started panting when I'd pick her up. It has been in the 80's here but Ragweed is thru the roof. I figured it was her sinuses again. About 2 hours ago she started looking for places to hide and was screaming like she was hurting. She felt a little swollen but shes soft. i try the warm water rub and she seems to be resting but still panting. She did stop running around, I made her a nest and put her in the corner.

    Maybe the warm water did her sinuses some good?
