Can you upload a copy of all of Rotine's test results to our conversation? I understand that you might not have a copy of the results at home but her vet should be able to give you one which you could scan into your computer and give me the link or you can photograph the page(s) and upload the images by using the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (if you can see such an icon) or by using an external app such as or Her vomiting, fever, and lethargy are important symptoms but they're not pathognomonic of any one specific disorder.
