Hi,

My name is***** and I am very sorry to hear that Afro is not feeling well.

Can you take her temperature? The normal body temperature for a dog is 100.5 to 102.5 degrees. Is she having any vomiting or diarrhea? What color are her gums? Any labored breathing? Is she spayed?

Please let me know the answers to these questions so that I can help you and Afro this evening,

Dr. Amanda
