My 14 year old Shiz Tzu started limping and crystal out in

Customer Question

My 14 year old Shiz Tzu started limping and crystal out in pain. What do I do?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: No. We recently moved from VA to Georgia and it has been very hot.
JA: The Veterinarian will ask you more detailed questions to find out what is causing this. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Her name is Cookie.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Cookie?
Customer: When I pick her up she seems to be in pain.
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.

I am sorry to hear you are worried about Cookie. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

I just came online. I am sorry you did not get help from an expert before now. Crying out in pain and walking hunched can be a sign of back pain. How is she doing; do you still want help?
