Hi this is Dr. Dani, I'm a small animal veterinarian and I'm happy to help with your dog. What is her name, age and breed? How long have these symptoms been going on? Did anything happen before the symptoms started? Please give me some additional information and I'll be happy to offer some suggestions.

I'm going to be going to sleep so I'll opt out so you can get help from another expert.
