I am very sorry to see that you have not received a response to your initial question before now. I just came online and found that your question had not been addressed. How is your companion at this time?

Any vomiting or diarrhea?

Is she eating and drinking well?

When did Marie last have a full panel of bloodwork performed?

Is she on any medications?

Any history of illness or injury?
