    Fluid build up is referred to as Ascites or water belly. Google it and you'll get all info.

    Such a pretty girl how old?

    Welcome to BYC! I agree with @Miss Lydia, it looks like it's ascites. How is she behaving?

    Will the end come soon. Is she in pain? Can it be cured?

    It can be drained, but the fluid almost always comes back. :hugs. Is she breathing normally?
