Customer Question

He's walking backwards and whining like he's in pain
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: There's nothing on his foot
JA: What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Bandit.... He's 5
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Bandit?
Customer: He scratches constantly to the point of bleeding at times. He has a cone but he's already maneuvering his way around that
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.

In order to supply you with an informed answer, it is necessary for me to collect some additional information from you.
