Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
How long has her belly been distended?
Can you confirm that she is spayed?
Does her belly feel hard or taut like a water balloon?
How is she? Lethargic, breathing normally, active as usual, eating/drinking?
Are her gums pink, pale, yellow tinted, or white?
