Customer Question

I have a large 4 yr. old dog who had diarrhea last night and now this morning he seems week had a hard time getting up but was able to walk.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Brady
JA: How old is Brady?
Customer: 3 1/2
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Brady?
Customer: He has been very healthy, I can move his legs with out causing him pain. I lifted up the distal portion of each leg, let it drop and both responded the same.
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.
