I am sorry that you have been waiting for a response, but it appears that the expert that you were initially working with is not available. I recently just logged onto the site and noted that your question hasn't yet been answered. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 25 years’ experience and would be happy work with you if you are still needing assistance.

If so, could you kindly reply to the second and third question that she inquired about as it will help me to get a better idea on how to respond.

Thanks and I will respond further after you reply. There may be a slight delay while I formulate and type a thorough response or I may be offline, but if so, I will respond as soon as I am able.
