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 situation, and wanted to help.Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me: Any known health issues?Any retching, gagging, lip licking, drooling, or vomiting?Any changes to her appetite or drinking?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?Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count her breaths for 10 seconds + multiply by 6)?
