Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? How long has this been going on for? What medications was Trouble prescribed?

I am going to try adjusting her diet for hypothyroidism and see if that helps. Thanks for your reply. I am not interested in subscribing to this service, but I wish you much success. Thanks for caring for all the pets! ;-)
