My cocker spaniel is having nd leg weakness. Going out on m.

Customer Question

My cocker spaniel is having hind leg weakness. Going out on him. Had torn ACL's and surgery 8 years ago. It started yesterday and getting worse
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: No foot wounds
JA: The Veterinarian will ask you more detailed questions to find out what is causing this. What is the cocker spaniel's name?
Customer: Rudy
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Rudy?
Customer: He is 12-1/2 months
JA: OK. Got it. Last thing - JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $19) to post your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
Customer: Not really. He is a great dog ...

Hello?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I paid $19, then paid another $36 ???? I just want this one time conversation with a Vet to discuss my dog. This has become very confusing and 1.5 hours with no assistance. Can someone please respond or reimburse me immediately
Expert:  Drhollowayvet replied 10 months ago.

Hi this is Dr. Holloway, I just signed on and saw that you needed immediate assistance concerning your pet.

So from what I understand your pet has just overall hind leg weakness. Ok. I have a few more questions concerning your pet

Does your pet have any chance or history of getting tick bites?

Does he have any medical history that I should know about?
