Expert:  Dr. B. replied 1 year ago.

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

How long has she had these signs?

How old is she?

Any retching, gagging, lip licking or vomiting?

Is she drinking normally? Can she keep water down?

Are her gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?

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

Could she have eaten something she should not have (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, etc)?

Do you think she isn't eating because she is constantly scratching? Where is she itching on her body? What does the skin look like?
