Customer Question

He's not wanting to jump on the couch or bed anymore. When I try to pick him up near his arm pits he cries. Juat now i tried picking him up near his abdomen and he cried again. This has been going on for about a week. He's a 1 year old beagle roughly 25 pounds.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The noise must be worrying. I'll connect you to the Veterinarian. What is the beagle's name?
Customer: Gus
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Gus?
Customer: He just got 2 shots his distemper and rabies about a week ago but I believe this started before his shots. He also has been very lazy and sleepy a lot
