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 had these signs?

What did her vomit and diarrhea look like? Any blood?

Has her itching subsided with the Benadryl?

When you say she has had ribs, do you mean she has had rib bones? Could she have eaten any?

Any belly discomfort?

Are her gums pink or pale/white?
