Hello there. This is Dr.Paul Brazzell. I am sorry that you are having trouble with Bella.
I can understand how stressful it is for you. I will do my utmost best to help you. Please note that it may take a few minutes to see my reply to your posts. Discussing the case by phone allows me to be more efficient and accurate in assessing the problem. Now, let’s see if we can get this sorted out for you. Is she spayed?
Thank you so much. Is she breathing faster or harder? Is her tummy enlarged?
Thank you so much. Is she losing weight? Is she vomiting?
Thank you for that information. Please give me a few minutes to type my recommendations.
Okay, I am back. This is a challenging case. Bella's signs are vague, and it is difficult to know what the underlying problem is. It could be an emergent gastrointestinal problem, musculoskeletal disease, a pain response, or a metabolic problem like glucose or calcium abnormalities. I think that it would be best to have her examined and perhaps her blood/urine tested. It is always best to err on the side of caution. Especially when we are unable to put our finger on the problem. They may also want to take X-rays of her back. I know that it is late there. You can take her in tomorrow morning. :)
