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

How long has she has these signs?

Can her pupils constrict when you shine a light into them?

Does she seem blind? (you can drop a cottonball to test if she can see it fall)

If you press on her belly, any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?

Could she have eaten something she should not have (ie drugs/meds, plants, chemicals, etc)?

Any known health issues?
