Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about your situation. Can you tell me if your dog has had any vomiting? If you look at her gums, do they look moist and pink? or pale? If you press on the gums with your fingertip, then pull your finger away, does the color immediately return to the gums or does it take longer than 2 seconds to return to normal?

It appears you aren't online right now and I am headed to bed, so I will open your question back up in case another expert is online later when you are back on the computer.

Thanks
