Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today.

I'm sorry for this concern for Finn.

I do have a few additional questions to ask about him first if you don't mind:

1. Can you take his temperature?

2. Is he lame or favoring any one particular leg when he walks?

3. Is he moving stiffly when he does move?

4. Is he currently taking any medication?

There may be a slight delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you. Thanks for your patience. Deb
