My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that Leana is sick this evening. Can you be more precise on describing her symptoms?

First, how much does she weigh?

What medications is she taking for arthritis?

Vomiting or diarrhea?

Eating and drinking?

Any changes in her ability to walk or move around?

What color are her gums? They should be a medium pink color.

Does her breathing appear normal or labored?

Coughing or sneezing?

Please let me know some more specifics about what is going on with Leana so I can help her today.

Best regards,

Dr. Amanda
