Please understand that I may send an information request so that I may gather what I need to better help you with your problem.

Sally G. :

can you explain the circumstance in which this happened?

Sally G. :

sorry for the delay it seems you opened another question pertaining to the same thing.

Customer :



Have no idea since she was at doggie day care.


 


Optional Information:
Type of Dog: collie rough
Dog's Gender: Female
Dog's Age: 7
Name of Dog: Godie
What have you tried so far?: continueing last question




Sally G. :

Since no one was there I would want the day care to answer these questions. Was it an open play time, were there any toys or food /treats around, whre there any new dogs in the area

Customer :

I believe she encountered a new undisciplined dog, which may have been disturbing to

Sally G. :

That would explain it.She is already an adult do and is used to the dogs that are with her, but if a new dog came in and got into her face that would make any dog feel uncertain and many dogs do not have dog etiquette

Sally G. :

so that would make sense for it to happen that way.

Sally G. :

Now my problem would also lie with the day care, why were the dogs not supervised properly if there was a new dog in the area

Sally G. :

That is a question I would want answered and I would want to know how they intend on handling this again when this dog comes

Sally G. :

Of course it could also be a health concern with your dog such as hypthyroidism as this will make a normally obedient dog turn slightly aggressive. has the thyroid been checked?

Customer :

No, have been checked by vet, but I could also look into this.

Sally G. :

I would do this to make sure she is healthy. It requires a blood test

Customer :

Ok, will do.

Sally G. :

I would also want to see the interaction between the new dog and your dog if possible

Customer :

Not going back, as my girl does'nt need to be put through this

Sally G. :

I can't blame you for that. But you will want to be sure her health is fine:)

Customer :

OK

Hello,

I am just checking in to see how your dog is doing and if the day care was able to provide you with more information.

This is a free follow up that I like to give my customers to see how things are going so I will leave it up to you if you wish to answer.

  • I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there. Alice H. Jacksonville, Fl.
