Hi there, I'm Dr. Sara. I'm a licensed veterinarian who works exclusively with dogs and cats. I'm really sorry to hear that Jersey hasn't been feeling well. I'll help the best that I can - I'd like to get some more information, though:

  • When you say that her health has declined dramatically - what are you seeing?
  • How is her attitude and appetite?
  • Does she have any previously diagnosed health issues?

Thanks and I'll await your reply
