Uh oh. White gums indicates profound anemia or, less commonly, a shocky patient. At her age, a large breed dog with an "ouchy" abdomen should be considered to harbor a bleeding splenic or hepatic tumor unless proven otherwise and is in need of prompt attention by a vet. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish but I'd rather you were on your way to the veterinary ER.
