I've got a baby that I'm bottle feeding she's only 4days old and had been taking to it fine. However, I noticed today after feeding that she was wheezing. I tapped her sides to get her to cough, which she did but I can't get her to cough all of it up. She's whining softly when she exhales along with with whistle sound to her breath. What can I do to help her? Should I just keep Patting?

I don’t know much about sheep as I’ve just started, but I’m a nurse for humans 😊 and if it’s not too much to be absorbed and grow bacteria, small amounts of aspirated fluids can go away on their own ... again this is in humans. I would assume same for animals. Watch for trouble breathing, lethargy, fever.

How is she doing now? I have had bottle babies do the same thing after being fed, it happens when they drink the milk to fast and instead of it all going to its stomach, some milk goes into the lungs. They will usually cough it up, then they are fine. Hope that helps! Let me know how she is doin'. :)
