Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I do have a couple more questions, though, to see if I can better assess your situation.

How old is Honey?

What breed of dog is she?

Does she ever have her tongue sticking out when she is awake?

Any vomiting, diarrhea, change in appetite, lethargy or any other sign of illness?
