Hello and welcome, I am Dr. B and would like to help you today.

How long has she had these signs? How long since did last lay?

What color is the discharge? Any odor?

If you palpate her abdomen, any masses, fluid, or distension?

Any breathing changes, stool changes, or paling of her oral mucosa (gums)?
