Customer Question

I have a 10 year old mini schnauzer. It's as if someone turned a light switch off in her! This has been going on since mid march. Ultrasound showed nothing. Labs nothing. She will barely eat now. Loosing wait.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What seems to be the problem with the schnauzer?
Customer: Barely eating. Loosing weight. All tests including ultrasound normal. Vet doesn't know what's wrong. Out of recommendations.
JA: Where does the schnauzer seem to hurt?
Customer: No injury or in pain
JA: What is the schnauzer's name?
Customer: Lilly
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Lilly?

My name is***** and I will try to help with Lilly. Did they test her triglyceride levels? Did they get any aspirates from any of her organs during her ultrasound?
