Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!I am sorry to hear that Bonnie is not feeling well. Just to confirm her symptoms, she is painful when picked up and eating grass occasionally. Is she moving normally or hesitating with steps/ stairs, walking stiff, tail tucked? Or has she had any vomiting or diarrhea, reduced appetite? Thank you
