Hello. This is Dr Mike. I have been practicing for 19 years and I will be happy to help you today with all of your questions. First I would like to start with a few questions to help me better understand your case.
Expert:  Mike McIntyre replied 6 months ago.
Do we have any underlying medical conditions? Are we on any medications currently? When you mention we have been sick a few times a week in the past. What do you mean by that?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
She has been seen by a vet over this, several times a week usually after eating she vomits, she has not vomited in last few days

Do you have any video you can send of this to me ? Has the veterinarian done any tests? Have they used any medications for this? If so, what were they ?
