    Thank you!!! She keeps eating the shavings, is this safe for her??? She knows where the food and water are as she gets over there by herself.

    She is eating or just putting them in her mouth? I’d cover her shaving with rubber shelving or old towels till end of the week. If actually eating she can get a blockage.

    Just put over the shavings then shake out wash and reuse. Usually by 2 weeks they know better.

    Thank you!!!!! I really worried about her legs and walking. She can stand, walk and run except her feet cross and she steps on herself A LOT she prefers to lay. Do you think a friend would help her get more motivated and stronger or make matters worse? I'm so sorry for asking so many questions but you are the only one putting up with me and my dumb questions lol.

    You need to be giving her some form of niacin. Did you get the liquid B complex if not get Nutritional yeast and sprinkle it over her feed. Didn’t you get the liquid? Are you putting it in her water? Heavier breeds need the niacin so much more than lighter breeds but even lighter breeds need it. A friend will probably motivate her to get moving are you letting her have swim time? Nice warm water it’s the best for strengthening leg muscles.
