Experience: Hello, I am a small animal veterinarian and am happy to discuss any concerns & questions you have on any species.
Verified

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

What antibiotic is she on just now?

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

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

If you press on her belly, any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Has her vulva and nipple region been irritating her at all?

Can you take a photo of the vulva and nipple so I can see what you are seeing? To post it, you can use the paper clip button on the tool bar above the text box (last icon). Or if you cannot see that, then post it on any site (ie Flickr, Photobucket, Imgr Instagram, etc) & paste the link here for me.
