Customer Question

I'm not sure but he seems to have the symptoms of parvenu. I had a dog that had to be put in intensive care a while back for the same thing. I cannot afford to pay for treatment. Yesterday he ate a little and had a it of water, so I started to have hope but today he went back to not eating. It breaks my heart to see him withering so fast. I am in Houston if you could please tell me where to take him, I would surely appreciate it!
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: We just call him little Buddy because we actually did not intend on keeping him. Tried to find him a home but didn't work out. I think his about 10 mos old.
JA: How old is Buddy?
Customer: About 10 months
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Buddy?
Customer: He seemed to be losing there hair on his arms about 3 months ago which is one of the reasons I tried to keep him & get him better. It looked like mange but he started getting healthy & his hair started growing back. I assumed he was OK
