Customer Question

She is having discomfort in her hind legs and balance is starting to be affected.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: She does lick a wound on her one leg by her ankle (for lack of the proper name.) I have a GenOne spray for that. Nothing on the bottom of her feet. She is a 13 1/2 yr old German Shepherd mix.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about .?
Customer: She has one moderately high liver enzyme. Would Rovera or aspirin help with her pain and discomfort?
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.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

Does she drag or cross her back legs at all?

Does she seem stiff?

Is she on any treatments for her legs or her liver?
