Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) Did I understand correctly that she is only 4 weeks of age?
2) Has she started her veterinary care already? Has a fecal exam been performed?
3) Has she been groomed recently?
4) What breed of dog is she?
