Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I do have a couple more questions, though, to see if I can better assess your situation.

When was the last time she ate?

Any vomiting or diarrhea?

For how long has her energy level been like this?

How much time does she spend outside?

What color are her gums?

If you press on her abdomen from both sides, is she painful or uncomfortable?
