Customer Question

My dog has been taking previcox for about 3 months. Now he is severely constipated. I have given him pumpkin, mineral oil And a suppository and nothing has helped. Is this from the previcox and what else can I do??
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Jake
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Jake?
Customer: I'm just worried it's something more than just simple constipation
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.
