Hello I am Dr. Joey. Thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 16 years of experience. I look forward to working with you.

Oh, my. That is certainly a concern. I would not feel safe recommending anything beyond 24 hours primarily with regard to water, especially for your 13 year-old. Beyond that we do run some huge risks of dehydration.
