It is possible that these signs are related to obstruction from the wrapper, but I would be surprised if that was the case. I'm concerned that she has something else going on such as pancreatitis, or even GI cancer. Has your vet tested her for pancreatitis? This is a very specific blood test which is not found on a general chemistry panel.
