Customer Question

Since she has been seen several times over the last few months and no obvious reason has been found, I would be more concerned about a food allergy. She is a little young, but it can happen. Let me ask a few questions to get a better idea of what my be causing this. Has she been on any other medications over the last several months? Is she a chewer? (meaning clothes, foreign objects) and how long has she been on the bland diet? Lets start there.

No medication. Is not a chewer. We do give her a rawhide chew every day.
