Customer Question

My doggy is having stomach spasms every 2 seconds or so, her tummy is hard and she seems to have a fever, we had her boarded for a week and picked her up 3days ago, at which time they gave her all the shots she needed Parvo rabies etc. She started getting ill today really bad, I'm thinking maybe she's having a bowel restriction, I haven't seen her go potty, and also she is very lackadaisical. Any thoughts?

Its almost like she is convulsing or shaking from cold but has been non stop since yesterday. about every two seconds.
She seems dazed or just out of it. She is drinking water here and there but doesn't want food and has not had any kind of bowel movement. No coughing or vomiting. Her stomach and tongue are hot to the touch like she has a bad fever.
