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 Reina, please?

Her behavior isn't that of a dog in respiratory distress but, instead, a dog intensely pruritic (itchy) and/or painful. She's looking behind her for the source of her discomfort and so her abdomen, anus and vulva need to be areas of concern.
