Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me: What medications has her vet started?Is she still on IV fluids or was it just one dose?Any retching, gagging, lip licking or vomiting?Are her gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?Any oral ulcers, sores, or ammonia scent to her breath?
