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:

Any signs of sores, ulcers, or bleeding around her teeth?

Are her gums pink or pale/white?

Could she have eaten anything odd?

Any belly discomfort, appetite loss, changes in breathing, or black stools?
