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 Sadie, please?

If her somnolence (sleepiness) and inactivity have persisted until now, Sadie needs the attention of her vet. Have any new symptoms arisen since you posted?
