Customer Question

My dog is scratching and running around. She is panting an has her tongue out. We put front line on her earlier today. Can't find any ticks.
JA: IÂ’m sorry to hear that. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Samantha 9 years old. She has used front line before.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Samantha?
Customer: We had chemicals on the lawn such as tick repellent and for grubs. That was a few days ago. Samantha has been walking more than normal, She is not eating as much.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
