Will you please attach video of what you’re seeing? There is an attachment function on the page that should allow you to post pictures and video. If your files won’t load they may be too large for the site. You can also use websites like http://www.imgur.com and youtube.com to upload pictures and video respectively. They’re all FREE. Once this is done, a set of links will appear. You can then post the link back and I can access them. If you are located in the USA and texting pictures/video would be preferable, please let me know. There is an additional charge for this service but it can take the guesswork out of trying to get information back to me and facilitate a faster response.

she seems to be doing a bit better so I believe I will wait until tomorrow. I gave L*** R**** some 8.5 PH water in a syringe and that really helped her. I could not get the video to upload I will continue to work on it and hopefully will get it figured out and maybe it was dehydration in addition to her nerves a storm was coming and she hates thunder. Thank you so much for your response. T*** C**** 7******* L*** R**** M**
