Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

Are the gums paler then usual for her?

What does her diarrhea look like? Any black material or blood?

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

Could she have eaten something she should not have (ie bones, toys, rocks, plants, chemicals, etc)?
