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

Has he had a reduced appetite?

Any diarrhea or increased thirst?

When he is passing urine, does it seem to be a large volume +/- watery?

Any changes to the skin where he is pulling out his hair?

Are his volumes mostly hair?
