Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with 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 many apples to you think she has had (approximately)?
Has she been eating the cores?
Does she seem bloated?
If you press on her belly, does Isabelle seem tender, tense, or painful?
Has she passed any stool?
Any straining to do so?
Any other signs?
