JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Rusty.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Rusty?
Customer: I have been giving him water by medicine dropper.. his tongue is light pink and very wrinkled.
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.
