We were given hard food to feed her 4 small meals a day

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

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

How long has Gucci been bloated?

Is it after eating or continuous?

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

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

Is she straining to pass stool?

Any breathing difficulties?

Could she have eaten something harmful (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, etc)?
