Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you. Just like an in person consult, I have a few questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible....

How long has Preston refused to go to the bathroom?

Is he your dog?

Is he neutered?

Is he eating/drinking normally?

When was the last time you saw him urinate or defecate?

How is he acting otherwise?
