Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

Can you confirm that she is passing urine?

How long since her last stool?

Is she able to keep water down?

Are her gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?

Any belly discomfort, appetite loss, or breathing changes?

I needed this answer last night--you advertised you were there 24/7 I just wanted to know if I had an emergency i needed to attend to immediately or could she wait till we could get her to her vet today--you didn't answer till 7:35 this morning--we will take her to her own vet I am not interested in what you have to say at this point.
