Customer Question

He couldn't bark and get up when my roommate arrived and he flinches when I reach for his head to pet him
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: He's 13.5 years and has been getting acupuncture for age related neurological problems. He couldn't walk before acupuncture, but was responding well to the treatment, herbs, and supplements.
JA: What is the dog's name?
Customer: Gregor
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Gregor?
Customer: He has many fatty tumors as well as some that were inconclusive when tested a couple of years ago.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
