    I was close to taking one of my girls to the vet yesterday as she seemed very off colour and when I took her temp it was at 40.2 which I thought was to high but the OH having the more level head said give a drop of remedy rescue and see how she goes, so tat what I did and an hour later she was much better was happy to eat again and drink think she was just having don day liek we all get sometimes. Her temp is back to normal again today otherwise I would have taken her down the vets today for an anitbiotic jab, but she is fine.

    Hope your girl is ok Nat?

    take care
    Sarah
