Sheila Thornton, lead killer whale research scientist with Fisheries and Oceans Canada, said they are anxious that the time and energy it spends carrying the body could take away from foraging or feeding.
The distinctive black-and-white orcas have struggled since they were listed as an endangered species in the US and Canada over a decade ago.
Scientists on both sides of the border have been working together on an emergency rescue plan for a young female orca known as J50, that appears emaciated but continues to swim alongside her mother.
An global team has been waiting for the chance to get close to the female killer whale to help her, including possibly giving her antibiotics or feeding her live salmon at sea.
If things go well, she said, the team could move ahead with feeding the orca live salmon from a boat. NOAA officials say her condition is being monitored.
Michael Milstein with NOAA Fisheries says experts plan to do a health assessment of the young whale if conditions allow.
They were able to obtain a breath sample from the juvenile female orca to help assess any infection she might have and they also administered a dose of antibiotics.

He led DMK to victory in 1996, but AIADMK under Jayalalithaa trumped his party once again in 2001. DMK workers broke barricades and shouted slogans against the Centre and the state government.
The idea of removing the calf from her mother is "not on the table", according to Brad Hanson, a wildlife biologist with NOAA.
"This is a novel undertaking", Mr Hanson said. Scientists are anxious about her and will watch her but don't have plans to help her or remove the calf.
The fish-eating orcas that frequent the inland waters of Washington state are down to 75 animals, and there hasn't been a successful birth since 2015.
They face nutritional stress over a lack of their preferred food source, Chinook salmon, as well as threats from toxic contamination and vessel noise and disturbances that disrupt their ability to communicate and forage. Tahlequah is not carrying that calf's body all by herself - members of her family have been helping her with her vigil.
But the carcass, which Tahlequah has now carried for around 1,000 miles, is starting to deteriorate, and Giles said her mourning may soon come to an end.
The Puget Sound calf was the first in three years to be born to the dwindling population of endangered southern resident killer whales. She was last seen Thursday still carrying the body.
"Even if her family is foraging for and sharing fish with her, J35 can not be getting the. nutrition she needs to regain any body-mass loss that would have naturally occurred during the gestation of her fetus and also additional loss of nutrition during these weeks of mourning", she said.
Teams taking drastic measures to save a young, ailing killer whale loaded up two boats with live fish and rushed to waters near an island off Washington state Friday, preparing if needed to feed the critically endangered orca a day after injecting it with medicine.
