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

How long ago did she eat them?

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

Can she keep water down?

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

If you press on her belly, does she have any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?
