Thanks for trusting me to help you and Charlie today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 30 years of experience and would be happy work with you but need a bit more information to better assist you if you don’t mind.

Can you tell me when the last time Charlie's cortisol levels were checked?

Does he seem weak?

Can you look at his gums and see if they are nice and pink and if the color comes back quickly when you press on them?
