She was peeing all over her self so I tryed vinagerwhere she pees,it helped for a few days until she started agian,andthen laying in it. She now has no fur on her back legs or her feet dueto laying in her pea. I tryed giving her a bath to help clean her up,as soon as i got her dryed and back in her "clean" cage it startedagian.... Now she wont eat but like a niple here and there,all she doseis just lay there and im sooo scared im going to loose her.I haventbeen able to get her fixed due to lack of money. I just found a vetthat will take her in for 40$ plus additional fees and medicationand 200 to get them both spayed.... In thumperscondtion what do you think I could do to help her until I take her tothe vet in 5 days... IM Getting her Spayed as soon as she feelsbeter..Im just scared it could be too late.

What do you have on her cage floor? Ifyou don't normally put anything down, could you used newspaper orlitter all over the floor? Or move her temporarily into awire-bottomed cage.

After you do another "butt bath," put desitin baby ointment on her skin, per Pamnock:

Here's an article on urine scald:

The best thing you can do for her is to keep her as dry and clean asyou can. There are different things that can cause this, soI'm not sure what you can do besides that.

They havent been together in a while,due to mounting but they do getout too play together. I went to the vet last night,The soarson her feet are due to ware in tare of the cage? So they told me tokeep a towel down there to give her more padding to walk on.Theywatched her walk for a few moments then they took her blood.She hasntbeen eating latly well not alot and lost weight she only weighs 3.8pounds.So they gave me 3 difffrent meds to give her by her mouth and togive her lots of veggies and timothy hay to fatten her up,and to bringher back in 1 week for a weighing test and 2 weeks for moreblood.Overall i spent about 240 on her but hey it was worth it seeingher getting the help she needs...

Thanks agian for all the help this fourm gives out everyday.
