She really needs to be seen by a vet. However, in the mean time, perhaps your can answer some questions.

--Is she spayed?

--Is she drinking normal amounts of water and urinating normal amounts?

--Any vomiting, diarrhea, coughing?

--How long has she been sick?

--Any changes you can think of?--diet, exposure to other dogs, unusual treats, etc.

--Are her gums pale?

--Is she breathing normally?

--If you press on her abdomen, does it seem uncomfortable?
