Hello,

My name is***** and I will help you.

I have a few questions.

How old is she?

How much does she weigh?

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 10 months ago.

Is it very warm where you are?

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 10 months ago.

Does she seem anxious?

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 10 months ago.

Benadryl does calm dogs. But I want her weight so I can give you the right dosage.

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 10 months ago.

Did the Benadryl make any difference?

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 10 months ago.

It has been two hours since i emailed you. Perhaps you went to bed.

I cannot help you unless you answer the questions.

I need to log off now but I will check in the morning to see if you are back on line.
