She has not vomited at all.
Her rectal temperature at noon today was 102.2. At 2 p.m. it spiked to 103.8.
During her episodes she:
--has a slightly arched back
--usually has a soft tummy, but today she is a little guarded
--she is not able to find a comfortable position to lay in, and will usually settle in a tight fetal position, though stretching her legs frequently and sometimes getting up to stretch out her hind quarters.
--sometimes whimpers/moans quietly
--will not eat/drink for those few hours
She gets temporary relief when we walk for several minutes or longer. Otherwise her appetite is normal. Her stools are somewhat normal; sometimes a little loose and a lighter brown color. She's consistently a little gassy.
