Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

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?

Could she have eaten something she should not have (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, etc)?

Has she had any diarrhea?

By funny walking, does she seem weak, sore, wobbly, etc?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Weak, wobbly
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
She is a little stiff right now

Thank you,

Though can you answer the rest of my questions above please? That way I can assess how serious this situation may be for her.

Dr. B
