Hi there- I'm Dr. Sara. I'm a licensed veterinarian who works exclusively with dogs and cats. I'm sorry to hear that your Chihuahua hasn't been well lately. I have a few questions for you to aid me in giving you the most complete answer:\

  • What is your pup's name?
  • What medications has your vet tried (besides the prescription diet)?
  • How long has he been on the diet and do you feel that it's helping?

Thanks and I'll await your reply
