Customer Question

He is 15 years old, and pants so much during the day and night. He has been throwing up today - yellow bile
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?
Customer: Not that I know of - I guess he could have found something in the yard
JA: OK. The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Huxley
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Huxley?
Customer: he is a black lab, and he has been failing. He has trouble getting up and down and we have shortened our walks significantly
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.
