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?

2) Is he still climbing stairs and jumping onto or off of other elevated surfaces like a bed or porch?
3) Still eating and drinking well?
4) On any medications at this time?
