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.

1) Did the clinic perform any bloodwork on her?
2) Can you tell me about any vitamin supplementation given?
3) What does her diet consist of?
4) Can you share video of her ambulation at this time?
5) Any known history of trauma?
