Customer: Hi Justin - I have an 8y/o diabetic pug
, and tonight he started having some quite soft stools with some red mixed in (I'm guessing blood). He's been diabetic, insulin dependent, for two years. At first he was acting normally, but now he's a bit more lethargic than usual (although he is a pug, so it's not like he is super active anyway). I'm trying to determine how to proceed. Is it worth a trip to the emergency vet? Do we call our vet in the morning and get him in?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: What else would be helpful for you to know? We do not monitor his blood sugar levels on a regular basis, he only has it checked when we go in to the vet for check-ups, but he responds well to his current dose 10 units U-100 bid
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: Sure, that's fine :)
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.
