Hello, my name is***** and I'd like to help you and Gracie. Were you sent home with any medications to give her? Is she eating and drinking ok?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
She's eating fine
She's on a raw diet so she doesn't drink all that much
She's taking tramadol and rovera
This happened today so she has not started medications yet

Not knowing the extent of the injury, it's possible that she is too painful to squat appropriately to pee. I would start the medications now, they should kick in within an hour so she feels more comfortable assuming the position to urinate.

If I have answered your questions, please kindly rate me (this is how I am compensated for my time). If not, please reply back and I am happy to answer additional questions. Thank you.
