Hi Maria, thanks for choosing Just Answer.

I have a few questions about your girl.

1) What type of diet is she on? Give me information about ALL she eats and drinks, any commercial food, table scraps, etc.

2) What medication is she regularly taking? Anything for her heart?

I'll be near the computer today to help you when your response comes through. Thanks ahead of time!
