    Mystery Illness

    So I thought Freyja had pancreatitis again but I took her to the vet today and her levels are normal. Vet gave her some Pepcid and said he could not find anything wrong with her. Maybe it was just GERD. I am very concerned. I know my baby is not herself, she has not even attempted to play...

    We got a foot and a half of snow earlier in the week and now my female will not go potty in the yard.
