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

Are her gums pink or pale/white?
Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count her breaths for 10 seconds + multiply that by 6)?

Does she seem weak?

When did she last pass stool?

Is she drinking? Can she keep that down?

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