Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am currently not set up to make a live call. But, I am happy to answer your question on this thread. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- How long has she been lethargic?

2- Any pre existing medical conditions?

3- So, her body is very thin with a distended abdomen, correct?

4- Any vomiting, diarrhea or coughing?
