Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How long has ago did you put this on her?

How much? Was it dilute or pure?

Any chance she licked it off?

Any gagging, retching, lip licking, drooling or vomiting?

Are her gums pink, yellow tinted, or pale/white? Moist or sticky?

Any breathing changes?

If you press on her belly, any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?
