Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 1 year ago.

Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) You say that she is normal, all is well with eating, drinking, urinating and defecating?
2) Any injuries to her head in her time with you?
3) Does it seem to slow her down at all?
