Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) Is Lilli being handfed in an elevated position and the bowls are on the floor?
2) When did this begin?
3) Does it matter what she is fed? (Hard food, soft food, etc)?
