Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

How long has Lucy had these signs?

What anti-inflammatory is being used specifically?

Any signs of improvement with the treatment at all?

Were her signs sudden in onset?

What tests have her vets done?
