Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!

So sorry to hear Lokelani is not feeling well. May I ask if she is spayed?

Expert:  Dr. Altman replied 11 months ago.

If she is not fixed then the primary concern is a pyometra or an infection in her uterus. CLICK HERE for more information on this condition, which is a true emergency for her and I would very strongly urge a veterinary er tonight

If she is fixed then the possibilities are wide including an infection in the stump of her uterus from her spay, a urinary tract infection, a kidney infection to name a few. With the fact that this has not improved and has progressed in the past few days I would still urge a veterinary er visit to determine the underlying cause and how best to help her but if she is not spayed this is moreso of an emergency

I hope this information makes sense but please let me know how else I can assist you today. If you do not know about a veterinary er in your area, please call your regular vet who will often list on their voice mail what to do in case of an emergency.
