Hi, I'm Dr. Gregg and I will try to answer your questions today. Do you know what the chews are made of and where they come from?

There were ingrediences that our vet couldn't pronouce or knew!
Expert:  Dr. Gregg replied 4 months ago.

Thanks for that information. I have a general rule that the only treats or food I feed my animals must be made in the USA. There was a serious problem with animals sick from chicken treats from China several years ago. I am especially un-trusting of products from Korea, China and the Far East, as well as South America. Food products from these regions can be contaminated with bacteria or toxins

Did your Vet think Grettal was sick from the treats or was he not sure what was wrong with her?

Expert:  Dr. Gregg replied 4 months ago.

What medication is Grettal taking now? Has she been sick in the past like she is now?

Expert:  Dr. Gregg replied 4 months ago.

Sorry to ask so many questions but since I can't see or examine Grettal, I have to depend on what you see and know

Expert:  Dr. Gregg replied 4 months ago.

Can you tell me what Grettals symptoms are and perhaps I can help you figure out what is wrong with her.
