I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Snowflake, please?

As you're determined, she's uncomfortable but without supportive evidence - other symptoms - the source of that discomfort remains unclear. Have new symptoms arisen? Are you seeing a change of posture, difficulty jumping up or down or navigating steps, vocalizing when approached or lifted?
