Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How long has she been doing this?

Do you mean that Ria sticks her back legs out and potentially puts more weight on one hip when sitting?

Has her vet ever xrayed her hips and spine?

How much does she weigh?

What was their diagnosis when they started her on this medication?
