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

Do you know why her siblings died?

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

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

Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count her breaths for 10 seconds + multiply by 6)?

Any diarrhea or constipation?
