Hi! Are you a vet?
JA: No. I'm the veterinarian's Assistant.
Customer: Ok! I have a question
JA: What sort of animal are we talking about?
Customer: Dog 4 year old, Lab
JA: OK. I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with the dog?
Customer: Lately she has been having trouble jumping onto my bed, into my car, has been slipping a lot on wood floors, and takes a little longer to get up when she's laying down. I've started her on a glucosamine chondriton supplement, so maybe that has something to do with it? She's so young... She still wants to play
ball and go on walks and does great.
JA: Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The veterinarian will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name?
JA: Is there anything else the veterinarian should be aware of about Jackie?
Customer: Not really! We haven't had any health issues before. She is a service dog so is exposed to a lot, but is up to date on all her vaccines
