Hello & welcome. I do apologize that my colleagues could not assist you while I was away. Still, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:
How old is Babies?
Were her bloods a general profile? Was her thyroid checked (not part of a standard blood test)?
So, there has been no increased in her thirst, appetite, and urination?
Any weight loss?
Do you think she has reduced feeling in the right leg?
Does she drag the leg at all?
