Hello. I am sorry to hear that Ruby is not feeling well. I would be happy to help I just have a few questions so I can better assist you. Any chance she got in to anything toxic?Is she spayed , if not when was her last heat cycle? Has she had any recent changes to her diet including new food, treats or human foods? Does she have any previous medical history or is she on any medications? Does she ever eat things she should not such as toys, clothing etc

Thank you for your inquiries, we took rubes to an emergency vet center yesterday. She had a large mass in you stomach and was in kidney failure. We had to put her down. I am heartbroken, but I know it was the right decision.

Thanks, Jen
