Hello, I am Dr. Peter a licensed Veterinarian. I would like to help. I need to ask you a few questions to be well informed and give you the best advice. There may be a slight delay between your follow ups and my replies as I type out a thorough reply for you.

1- Can you check her butt area and see if the skin is ruptured on the side of her anal sphincter?
2- Is she strictly indoors?
3- Did she get into anything?
4- Take a look at her gums and see if they are pink or pale?
5- Can you take a rectal temperature on her?
