Hi there and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed, internship-trained veterinarian with 10 years experience in general medicine and emergency and critical care medicine and I would be happy to assist you. Please be patient as there may be slight delays in responses as I research your pet's issue.

What is the current treatment- is she on a prescription diet? Are you giving fluids under the skin at home? Any vomiting? Is she still eating?

While I was starting process, her condition deteriorated. It is a matter of time now. Sent email that no further assistance required at this time. Thank you.
