Customer Question

My dog has had diarrhoea for 3 days now. This morning we noticed he is not walking well at all. He stumbles and he won't put any weight on his front and back legs.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: Yes we have, no wound whatsoever on any foot. It's his right front leg and back left leg.
JA: The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the dog's name?
Customer: The dogs name is Tonner.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Tonner?
Customer: Not that I can think of.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

What does his diarrhea look like?

Does he just seem weak or is are there any swellings or pain in his joints?

Are his gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?

If you press on his belly, any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?

Could he have eaten something he should not have (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, etc)?
