Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How long has she had these signs?

Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count her breaths for 10 seconds + multiply that by 6)?

Are her gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?

If you press on her belly, does she have any discomfort, tenderness, distension or tensing?

Could she have eaten something she should not have (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, etc)?
