JA: I'm sorry to hear that. How old is Naoko?
Customer: 15 months.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Naoko?
Customer: When we got her she had a hotspot and she was really skinny. I assumed it was from the Kennel but I think she has worms.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

How long has she been losing weight?

Any appetite loss or vomiting?

Any diarrhea?

Does she pass lots of dilute/watery urine?

When was she last wormed?
