Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I do have a few questions for you to better assess your situation.

How was she acting before her dinner?

What color are her gums?

Does her abdomen seem distended?

If you press into her abdomen from both sides, is she painful or uncomfortable?

Any recent change in diet, new treats, given human food, gotten into the trash or swallowed anything else?
