just checked on Minnie

and her posture looks very strange. shes hunched up and her back looks like it has kind of a ditch in it. shes not drinking either so ive given her some bread that ive soaked with a bit of water.
shes also dragging her legs behind her quite abit and is struggling to keep her balance.
could this be a result of the lice that have been on her? because shes had them for afew days and she is only a baby. shes also lost quite alot of weight. she weighed 25g just afew days ago and now she weighs about 12g.

Yes, take her to the vet. I know shes only a baby but do you get her teeth trimmed? It sounds like her teeth are to long for her to eat so it gives her stomach a caved-in look, vet asap

her teeth arnt that long as she has carrots and a block of wood to chew on so her teeth dont grow too long. she seems to be slightly better and has gained abit of balance but if shes not better in afew days then i will take her to the vets.

No offence but she sounds like she may be dead in a few days, I would take her tommorrow, if you want to leave it to see an improvment you should only wait 3 days at the most
