Customer: My dog has symptoms of anemia. She is about 11-12 yrs old & is a dachshund
/lab mix. She has been hyperventilating some, but not heavily. She used to go for walks but now gets winded after not going far at all. I've noticed that if she gets table scraps with garlic or onions that she gets really lethargic.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: She is a little overweight - actually maybe more than a little but she isn't obese. Weighs about 30 lbs - probably should weigh 25.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $19) to post your type of question to Dog Veterinary Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: I've been giving her treats
that have garlic in them. I read that this can cause hemolytic anemia. The description fits what is going on with her.
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
