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 wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

How long has she been bloated?

Does she feel firm, fluidy, or hard when you press on her belly?

How long since she last passed stool? Was it harder, runny, or squished in appearance?

Is she straining just now?

Are her gums pink or pale/white?

Any breathing changes?
