Customer Question

I have a 7 year old female boxer. She is very sick. She has lost her appetite, but she will drink water. She vomits, drools, and she lost weight. She just lies around. Don't know if she's in pain. I think she has some kind of virus. Oh, it appears that she has an eye infection. My name is*****
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the boxer?
Customer: The vet I took her to, first said she has lung cancer, ( I doubt) then he said it was the zika virus and he couldn't do anything for her. I live in Cleveland ohio.
