Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with 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:

Has there been any changes at home, noises in the neighborhood (ie fireworks, construction, etc), weather changes or changes in routine since this started?

Is she eating, drinking, passing urine and feces normally?

If you palpate her belly, back and legs; any signs of soreness?

Any changes to her breathing or paling of her gums?
