Experience: Hello, I am a small animal veterinarian and am happy to discuss any concerns & questions you have on any species.
Verified

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

Are her gums pink or pale/white?
Can you take a breathing rate and a heart rate for me (just count her breaths for 10 seconds + multiply that by 6. Then do the same while feeling the heart beat)?

Any signs of her being painful anywhere?
