I have some questions to help me best advise you about Poppy.
Is Poppy peeing/pooping normally?
Is she eating/drinking?
Does she still want to play or has her personality changed?
Has she broken any toys recently or could she have eaten something she shouldn't?
It may be that she has a hairball bothering her. You can add some olive oil to her food and add a little water to her wet food as well which will help make sure she's taking in plenty of water. If you have a gentle feel of her tummy, does it feel tense or relaxed? Can you feel any lumps?

Great, thank you. The olive oil can take 48 hours so you could try adding a commercial hairball remedy from your vets (over the counter) which may work a little quicker.
