Customer Question

My pug, that's over 20 years old hasn't walked in over two weeks.

Customer: Her leg is swollen and I made a make-shift soft cast. I believe its attributed to her arthiritis
JA: What is the dog's name?

Thanks for trusting me to help you and Snubu today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 30 years of experience and would be happy work with you but need a bit more information in order to better assist you.

Is she eliminating (urine and stool) regularly still?

How extensive is the swelling of her leg?

Thanks and I will respond further after you reply. There may be a slight delay while I formulate and type a thorough response or I may be offline, but if so, I will respond as soon as I am able.
