I am sorry to learn Booker is not feeling well. I will do my best to help you today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- How long has this been going on?

2- How old is Booker?

3- Any pre existing medical conditions?

4- Did your vet do x-rays?

5- How much does he weigh?

6- Breed?
