Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.
Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:
Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count her breaths for 10 seconds + multiply by 6)?
And a heart rate (just the same but with your hand on her heart to count the beats)?
Are her gums pink or pale/white?
When her vet drained her belly last time, what was the fluid color?
Did they do an xray or heart scan to diagnose what is causing this (since its likely the same issue reaching a critical point)?
