Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I'm a biologist with over 40 years of experience with dogs, and a special interest in dog health.I apologize that no one responded to you sooner. I suspect the reason for that is that your dog is critically ill. She needs to be seen by a vet as soon as possible.Here is a list of ideas for people who can't afford vet care: Also, if you live near a VCA Animal Clinic (these are in pet stores), they offer a free initial visit with the coupon you can get here: If none of these options work out, call your local animal shelter to see if they can help. Be sure to let them know your dog is in a life-threatening situation. If you have more questions, just let me know. I hope you can find some help for your dog, and she will be able to recover. Anna
