I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Can you tell me, please, what symptoms prompted Mozart's being attended to by his vet initially? How old is Mozart? Can you clarify what "back is stiff" implies? Have any diagnostics - blood/urine tests, fecal ova and parasite exam, e.g. - been performed?

I no longer have his paperwork here to answer the questions. I took him to the animal hospital early this morning. They admitted him and he is stable now . We are waiting for answers.

I understand. I would be pleased to review any test results you could upload to our conversation if you wish.
