Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I do have a couple more questions, though, to see if I can better assess your situation.

How long ago did he have bladder stones?

Did he have surgery to remove the bladder stones?

Does he interact with the family?

How is his appetite?

Does he tend to wander around like he is lost or stare at nothing?

When was the last time he had routine blood work done?
