Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hi, I'm Dr. Peter. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.
I am sorry Gypsy is not feeling well. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian and I will be assisting you today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.
1- Is she restless and uncomfortable?
2- Can you take a look at her gums and see if they are pink or pale?
Please give me a few minutes to type your answer. Thank you.
Friend, I am a bit concern of the symptoms that you are describing in Gypsy. These symptoms are consistent with a bloat (GDV), this is a condition where the stomach becomes filled with air and eventually will twist, untreated it is usually fatal. Unfortunately, we are very limited as to what you can do at home. I would strongly recommend taking her to the nearest ER veterinarian, do not wait. I realize that this answer may not be to your liking, and I regret being the bearer of information that you really don’t want to hear. But it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I to provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information. I hope you understand.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
