Hello, I am afraid that the expert you have requestedis not currently available. Still I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and Iwould like to help you with your wee one today.

How long ago was this eaten?

Any retching, gagging, liplicking, drooling, or vomiting?

Can she keep the water down?

Are her gums nice and pink (notwhite/pale)? Moist or sticky?

If you press on her belly, does she have any tensing,tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Can you take a breathing ratefor me (just count her breaths for 10 seconds + multiply by 6)?

Any straining to pass feces, bloody or black stool?
