Hello, again.

Congratulations on your recent move!

Being a former NY-er myself, the water is the best, ***** ***** the Indiana water, if it's harder, may have very well caused her to develop a UTI, cystitis or an irritation. Also, if you're using bottled water, now, use 'purified' or distilled, not 'drinking water.' If she had a urinary tract infection 2 years ago, she may be prone to this condition, which is not uncommon.

It would be advisable to have Biscuit (correct spelling? : ) ) seen in person by a vet, so she can be assessed, and also, a urine test and culture should be done, to see if she has any urinary condition and then she can be treated, if needed.

I hope all will be well with Biscuit and please let me know the vet's findings, if you can. Thanks!

Your satisfaction is my ultimate goal and I welcome any follow-up questions you may have on this subject, at no additional charge.

At the conclusion of our correspondence, your 5-star rating will be most appreciated, as this will enable me to continue to send quality answers to additional clients and be recognized by the website for my assistance. Thank you.

Best wishes,

Cher
