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

How long has she been showing signs?

Is she circling in any particular direction?

Any head tilting, head pressing into walls?

Is her urine more dilute/watery then usual?

Has she been drinking more?

Are her gums pink or white/pale? Moist or sticky?

Any chance she ate anything harmful (ie plants, chemicals, fertilizer, human meds, etc)?
