As a disclaimer I cannot diagnose nor prescribe treatment for your pup. I can help you understand what is going on and help alleviate any anxieties. Keelie seems to have a lot of medical problems and is being treated by her veterinarian for them. Are you able to do as your vet says and get her an ultrasound?
