Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

Have her stools been hard or soft?

Are you feeding her the same food she had with her previous owner?

Has she seemed stiff or sore at all?

Are you allowing her out to toilet before bed?

And do you walk her as much as her last owner?
