Customer Question

He had an injection of hydromorphone, metacam and lidocaine in his knee. His ears are stuck in erect position and his tongue is hanging out of his mouth. He seems unable to move it.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Pete is 10
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Pete?
Customer: He was diagnosed today with bone cancer. His knee is broken
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.
