Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

1) Has Sophie had any diagnostics like bloodwork to determine the cause of her heavy drinking prior to onset of these symptoms? If so, when was the bloodwork last run?

2) Does she have any history of illness or injury?

3) Is she on any medications at this time?
