Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

How long has she had these signs?

Has her thirst/urination always been excessive or is this a new feature?

Hi again,

My apologies, but I cannot offer the live phone call option at this time (the request is an automatic feature of the site). Therefore, please let me know if you want to discuss your wee one further via the Q+A feature as we have or if you wish for me to opt out to see if a fellow colleague can offer this service to you.

Good morning, JACustomer. Dr. B has opted out as they were unable to offer a phone call. I have placed an offer for a call, if you still need one. Bear in mind that there is an additional charge for this service.
