Customer Question

My dog is very off balanced and it seems as though she's having issues standing on her hinde legs. She's a ,5 year old maltese.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: Yes I did.
JA: The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Fancy
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Fancy?
Customer: I just took her to my local vet and they are referring her to a neurologist. I'm sure that is very expensive so I'm trying to find out if there are any other options.
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.
