Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

How is Lily just now?

Any retching, gagging, lip licking, drooling, or vomiting?

Can she keep water down?

Are her gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?

Any changes to her breathing?

Does she look distended in her belly?

If you press on her belly, does she have any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Could she have eaten anything she should not have (ie bones, stones, socks, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?

Any stool or gas passed since you posted?
