Hello & welcome. I do apologize that my colleagues were unable to assist you while I was away. Still, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

How far along is she?

Any changes in her ears, mouth, or discharges from her nose?

You noted that she is struggling to stand. Does she seem weak or does she appear to have reduced limb function?

Since she hasn't an appetite, have you been syringing fluids or anything else?
