Customer Question

I am fostering a small puppy (8 weeks). She is not eating or drinking, looks like she lost weight in just a day, and seems to be in pain. Her right left shoulder is painful to the touch. She also appears to have hiccups (but they are much more frequent in nature than typical hiccups). Please advise...I can't get a hold of the SPCA where I am fostering her from.
