Ok Carlos, we can see English isn't your first language so it's difficult to make out exactly what you mean. Can you tell us what your first language maybe someone here speaks the same.

It would help if you could post a photo and tell us how long you have owned this axolotl. Was it ok and then suddenly got sick? Can you tell us about the tank you keep it in?

Due to the language difficulties we might end up with confusion so I reccommend that you take it straight to a vet.

if i'm understanding this right, the right side of its body is floating? so it nearly goes upside down? maybe it has swallowed some air - try putting it in a tub with very low water, just enough to cover it so that it stays on the ground, for a few days, and see if that helps.

as mik said, though, you might need to find a vet that treats axolotls.
