I am now hand feeding my 5 month old silkie because she can no longer eat or drink. Her neck is shaped like the letter "S" and her head is turned to one side. She can only move backwards and in circles, dragging one leg. I have been giving her the PolyViSol drops twice a day and giving her vitamin e once a day but I do not see any improvement. Her beard appeared to have chunks of hardended cement but I believe it might be clumps of mite/lice eggs. Since they are rock hard and matted, I cannot get them out and am wondering if this is making her sicker. I coated them with vaseline to smother the eggs and hopefully soften them up enough to scrape off. I also bathed her applied mite/lice spray. I see her condition deteriorating every day but cannot end her life. Is she suffering? How do I know how much water to give her or how much food? Will she recover? Thanks for any advice.
