Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question today. Just like an in person consult, I have a few questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible....

Is Datounka healthy otherwise?

Who does his nail trims and grinding?

Does the one with the quick showing seem to be painful to him?

When was the last time his vet had a peek at him?

Is he on any medications or supplements?
