Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian & I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How long ago did this start?

Does she seem weaker in any one leg? Or her back legs?

Any appetite loss or breathing changes?

Any retching, gagging, lip licking, drooling, vomiting, or diarrhea?

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?
