I am sorry to hear you are so worried about your puppy. She does sound like she could be seriously ill.

Has she been vaccinated for parvo virus? Could she have eaten anything like a toy or a sock that could be causing an intestinal blockage?

Lift her lip to check her gums. Do they look a normal bright pink color, or do they seem pale to you?

Any vomiting at all?

What is on her chin?
