Of course we care! Keep us posted on how your babies do! We had Pixie spayed
and didn't even know she was positive at the time. She came out just fine.
Just keep an eye on her and if she doesn't drink soon, start putting some on
your finger and wetting her mouth to encourage her a little bit. It works
for me.
