shes been carrying a lot of extra water in her abdomen,i checked her to see if she was egg bound,but she does not lay anymore,i have her on lasix,shes eating and drinking fine.being shes old i think it may be cancer.
It could also be ascites. There's another post on here about it currently. You should check it out.

I know very little about ascites in a practical manner, but it's worth checking out the post which looks very well done.

Also consider internal laying. Palpate her, gently, to see if you can feel anything in that way. then you might jump in on that post as well.

I hope you can find help. Hopefully this will bump your post up and someone will see it.
