Customer Question

I have an 11 year old German Shepherd female, 116 lbs. who seems to be in some pain and struggles a bit to lay down - no hip displagia at all. Can she take Lyrica and if so what dose?
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?
Customer: Leibe
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Leite?
Customer: She has an auto immune disorder.
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.

Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today.

I'm sorry for this concern for Leibe. I do have a few additional questions to ask about her first if you don't mind:

1. Is she currently taking any other drugs?

2. If so, can you tell me what they are?

3. What milligram sized Lyrica do you have?

There may be a slight delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you. Thanks for your patience. Deb
