Hello. My name is ***** ***** I have been a veterinary nurse for 26 years. I would be happy to help.

Can you tell me how long she has been trying to vomit with nothing coming up?

Is her stomach harder or larger then normal? If larger ( bloated) can you tap on it and tell me if it sounds like a drum?

When did she last pass stool and was it normal?

Does she ever eat things she should not such as toys, clothing, sticks etc?

Is she on a month heartworm prevention if so what?

Is she eating and drinking normally?

Any previous health concerns?
