I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Pepper, please?

Her behavior did indicate discomfort which may have originated from her abdomen or back. Abdominal disturbances (cramping, nausea) are usually short-lived which back pain can persist.
