Hi I am Dr. Snow, and I can try to help! Is Calamity Jane spayed? The warm water bottle is a good idea. Unfortunately, there can be a lot going on with these types of symptoms. She could have eaten something unusual causing some discomfort in her stomach, or a pancreatitis. Is she having any vomiting? If she hasn't had a bowel movement, sometimes it can help to get them up and walk them around a bit to get things moving.
