Ok my mom just called. The vet sedated Sophie and said that when he got into her mouth to check out her gums/etc....her bite is off. The vet is doing a bite correction on all of her teeth. He is doing part of it today and part of it tomorrow so that she is not under anestesia for a prolonged period of time. The way that her teeth are off is causing her to drool excessively (and as a result she's lost a lot of fur on her chin/etc) He says that should hopefully fix part of the problem. The other likely cause for her weepy eyes/etc he said is definitely allergies. So hopefully once we get the shavings/cages changed out that should really help too.
