Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian & I would like to help you with your wee one today.

Has she been eating through this?

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

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

Does she appear to try to go but cannot?
